Renee Flemming Set to Lead A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE at Los Angeles Opera

Renee Flemming Set to Lead A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE at Los Angeles Opera

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.

A faithful adaptation of Tennessee Williams' classic play, André Previn's powerful opera evokes 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.

Presented in a semi-staged concert production, A Streetcar Named Desire is conducted by Patrick Summers leading the LA Opera Orchestra.

Semi-staged concert presentation. Mature subject matter; parental discretion advised.

Tickets will go on sale on October 20. For additional information, visit: http://www.laopera.com
