    One of the most beloved and celebrated musical ambassadors of our time, soprano Renée Fleming is loved for her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. At a White House ceremony last July, the President 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. 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.

She will be performing at the Tanglewood opener on Saturday night and later this month, she will stay in the Berkshires to perform her first role in a play. She will make her debut at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Living on Love, playing an opera diva at odds with her husband over the people they’ve hired to ghostwrite their autobiographies. It runs July 16 through 26th.
