overview



Renée Fleming, “America’s most-loved and most-lauded opera singer” (The Times, UK), returns to San Francisco Opera in the title role of this melodically rich bel canto masterpiece. A femme fatale renowned for her ruthless pursuit of power, Lucrezia Borgia reveals poignant vulnerability when she comes face to face with her long-lost son. The silken-voiced soprano sings this touchstone role “with raw intensity and earthy richness, utterly inhabiting the character” (The New York Times). She will be joined by "rising American tenor Michael Fabiano [who] shone as Gennaro, his warm lyric tone founded on long-breathed phrasing and a well-shaped line" (Opera News), and bass Vitalij Kowaljow, who sings with a “potent blend of vocal weight and emotional transparency” (San Francisco Chronicle); mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong, whose "big, bright and pleasing voice was wonderful as Orsini" (The New York Times); and led by internationally acclaimed conductor Riccardo Frizza.
