About the Album

"Song to the Moon" has been one of Renée Fleming's signature pieces for a long time. This 1998 recording of Rusalka showcases Fleming's interpretation of the water nymph in its entirety.

As a water sprite who becomes human for love of a prince, Renée Fleming gives her best recorded performance so far with a dramatic heat and theatrical dimension (plus her customary vocal luster) that her Czech predecessors haven't always mustered.
