Opera at the Cinema: LUCREZIA BORGIA
May 18, 2014
Renée Fleming, "America's most-loved and most-lauded opera singer" (The Times, London), returns to San Francisco Opera in the title role of this melodically rich bel canto masterpiece. A femme fatale renowned for her ruthless pursuit of power reveals poignant
vulnerability when she comes face to face with her long-lost son. The silken-voiced soprano sings this touchstone role "with raw intensity and earthy richness, utterly inhabiting the character" (The New York Times).
