She’s considered the voice of a generation, the woman who redefined the term ''diva'' — Renée Fleming. Lyrical, dramatic, beautiful and strong, Fleming is the prototype for a new opera star. She brings all that talent to bear in an encore broadcast of Rodelinda, part of the Metropolitan Opera Live in HD series.
Fleming reprises Queen Rodelinda, a role she sang in the 2004 Met premiere of Stephen Wadsworth’s larger-than-life production, which won rave reviews. It tells the story of Queen Rodelinda, a woman whose love for her husband never falters, even when she mistakenly thinks he’s dead.
Forced to make cruel choices, Rodelinda proves to be no frail monarch; she’s brave and bold, not only because of her loving loyalty to her husband but because her own life depends on it, too. 6:30 p.m. Various locations, including the Houston Marq*E Stadium 22 plus IMAX, 7620 Katy Freeway.
