Renée Fleming retires ‘Der Rosenkavalier’ in a new Robert Carsen Production at Met Opera

The Metropolitan Opera

30 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023

The last time the Met revived Rusalka, it starred Renée Fleming in a role that played no small importance in her own career. In April, the Met offers Ms. Fleming, who is 57, a new production for the role with which she is perhaps most associated, Marschallin in Richard Strauss’ grand comedy Der Rosenkavalier. The production is directed by Canadian Robert Carsen (the Met’s 2013 Falstaff) and also stars the Latvian mezzo-soprano powerhouse, Elīna Garanča. Ms. Fleming told the Telegraph in February that Rosenkavalier at the Met and Covent Garden this season would be her last “mainstream opera appearances.” Also singing are Erin Morley (Sophie), Matthew Polenzani (A Singer), and in a Met debut, Marcus Brück as Faninal. Don’t miss this performance.
