Renée stars as Hanna, the widow on whose fortune rests the fate of a nation, in Franz Lehar's light-hearted operetta. Complications abound. Hanna ultimately gets her man as Lehár’s unforgettable tunes bubble happily along. Susan Stroman, one of Broadway’s hottest directors, leads Lyric’s blockbuster cast, including Thomas Hampson, Heidi Stober, and Michael Spyres in an “eyepopping production...breathtaking to look at and a pleasure to hear.” Huffington Post

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Jiří Bělohlávek conductor
Renée Fleming soprano
Two ballets; Debussy’s sensual sylvan evocation and Ravel’s Daphnis & Chloe, frame two works for soprano and orchestra. Robin Holloway’s luminous arrangement of the composer’s Verlaine settings, C’est L’extase, was hailed as ‘a revelatory exploration of Debussy’s musical style’ at its premiere. Anders Hillborg’s bewitching Strand Settings, expressly composed for Fleming in 2013, delve into the nocturnal world of the sea and secret desire: ‘At once atmospheric, elegiac and unsettling’ (New York Times).
