A Night at the Opera
Recently I had the opportunity to see Renée Fleming in the Lyric Opera’s production of “Capriccio.”
I personally feel that Renée Fleming is the greatest living soprano. While I am not crazy about German operas, it was worth every minute to hear Renée Fleming’s aria at the end of the opera. When listening to her voice, one wonders where this incredible and beautiful sound could be coming from.
As impressed as I was with her magnificent voice, I was equally impressed with her warmth, charm, and sincerity when I had the opportunity to meet her backstage. She even suggested we take a “selfie.”
The great pianist Van Cliburn’s mother once said, “Everyone is given a talent. It’s what you do with it that counts.” I absolutely agree. Throughout the years, people with exceptional talent have been an enormous inspiration to me. I know that no matter what you do in life, you can always do better. It really makes life very exciting, at any age.
Thank you Ms. Fleming for giving us the opportunity to provide your temporary accommodations while in Chicago. You are simply fabulous!
