Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed American soprano Renee Fleming enjoys particular success in roles from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when glorious vocal writing and opulent orchestrations took the art of opera to new heights. In studying and performing this passionately lyrical music, Fleming became increasingly fascinated with her predecessors - sopranos of a golden age who made this intensely emotional music their own. Homage: The Age of the Diva is a tribute to these iconic sopranos and their signature arias.
