Renee Fleming at the Kaplan Penthouse; Norma at Tanglewood in '08

The big news: Renee will debut Norma in a concert version with James Levine at Tanglewood in 2008. She mentioned that Levine said, "You have to do this role because you have to do it." While dramatic sopranos have been singing Norma recently, this will be a lyric Norma. Renee added, "It's a huge risk. But, what? I should never take a risk?"

This was an especially informative interview, and any time spent with the charming soprano is time well spent.

More later.
