SF Chronicle Interviews Renée Fleming

Renée Fleming, America’s most celebrated soprano, first performed with the San Francisco Opera in 1991, portraying Countess Almaviva in “The Marriage of Figaro.” She’s been back a few times – in Andre Previn’s “A Streetcar Named Desire,” for one – and returns Friday in the title role in Donizetti’s bel canto masterpiece, “Lucrezia Borgia.” Fleming, 52, spoke from her home in New York, touching on a range of topics, from her love of San Francisco to how her voice has changed over the years.
