When Renée Fleming starred as Blanche DuBois in André Previn’s A Streetcar Named Desire, she wowed audiences with her many showstopper arias. Start your week off right by listening to the blues-inspired opera, particularly Blanche’s radiant Act III aria, “I Want Magic,” in which she reveals her innermost desires.
Renée’s LA Opera portrayal of the doomed southern belle occurred in 2014. Look out for her return to Los Angeles in concert with Plácido Domingo March 18, 2016.
