Renée Fleming makes her first-ever recording of Ravel’s ravishing Shéhérazade as the sensual centrepiece of an album of 20th century French vocal masterpieces. Complementing Shéhérazade is Olivier Messiaen’s collection of love songs to his young wife, the Poèmes pour Mi – a tour de force of voluptuous vocalism. A trio of major works is completed by one written for Renée Fleming by the doyen of French composers, Henri Dutilleux – his dramatic Le Temps l’horloge.

Lyric Opera goes to nine productions for upcoming season

Chicago Tribune | by John von Rhein

Renée Fleming will star as Blanche DuBois in "A Streetcar Named Desire."

Chicago opera lovers impatient to learn what innovations Anthony Freud will put into place now that he is well and truly ensconced as general director of Lyric Opera of Chicago, will have to cool their heels.

The first Lyric season to fall entirely under the new general director’s planning won’t arrive until the 2015-16 season. Just about everything else in the way of repertory and casting for the coming three seasons will have been put together by his predecessor, William Mason, and Mason’s team.
