Just two weeks after her Super Bowl appearance in singing our National Anthem, please join acclaimed soprano Renée Fleming in recital at Carnegie Music Hall, Oakland in a very special event as part of the 75th Anniversary Season celebration of Pittsburgh Opera!
Ms. Fleming's program includes Mozart's Nehmt Meinen Dank, Rachmaninoff's Twilight, Dvorak's Songs My Mother Taught Me, selections by Canteloube, Strauss's Standchen, Wagner's Traume, as well as selections by Weill, Schoenberg, and Handel. Ms. Fleming's recital program also include selections from American musical theater.
As part of its 75th anniversary celebration, Pittsburgh Opera will present a recital by one of the most beloved and celebrated musical ambassadors of our time -- soprano Renée Fleming who is also a Western Pennsylvania native!
Ms. Fleming captivates audiences with her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. At a White House ceremony in July 2013, President Obama awarded Ms. Fleming the National Medal of Arts, America's highest honor for an individual artist. Known as “the people’s diva” and winner of the 2013 GRAMMY® Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo, she continues to grace the world’s greatest opera stages and concert halls, now extending her reach to include other musical forms and media. Over the past few seasons, Ms. Fleming has hosted a wide variety of television and radio broadcasts, including The Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series for movie theaters and television, and Live from Lincoln Center on PBS.

While regularly priced tickets start at $40 in the upper balcony (and up to $150 for the best seats), Pittsburgh Opera is very graciously offering the Meetup a discounted ticket of only $30.
And as a special bonus, Meetup members will be given the best available seating on the day of the performance; so it's possible you could find yourself in an even better seat (i.e., that might otherwise cost $60-$100 without the discount).
