Photo Flash: First Look at Renee Fleming, Ryan McKinny and More in LA Opera's A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

Superstar Renée Fleming returns to Los Angeles in a role created for her extraordinary talents! Clinging desperately to a masquerade of Southern grace, Blanche DuBois moves into her sister's cramped apartment, creating all the wrong kinds of sparks with her crude brother-in-law. When dark truths about Blanche's past begin to emerge, her world comes apart at the seams in a spiral of violence and madness. Check out a first look below!

Evan Rogister conducts André Previn's faithful adaptation of Tennessee Williams' classic play, its jazz-inflected score evoking a highly charged New Orleans setting. Bass-baritone Ryan McKinny is the hotheaded Stanley Kowalski, with soprano Stacey Tappan as Stella and tenor Anthony Dean Griffey as Blanche's guileless suitor Mitch. An innovative staging by director Brad Dalton puts the stellar cast front and center, with the orchestra on stage behind the action.
