Here’s the IMAX trailer for François-René Martin’s live Renée Fleming’s Cities That Sing, on YouTube:
The City of Light benefits from a rich history of opera, architecture, costume, fashion, fine art… and a musical timeline spanning centuries. Performing at the historic Théâtre du Châtelet, Renée Fleming is joined on stage by special guest star Piotr Beczala and featured performers Axelle Fanyo and Alexandre Duhamel as they perform well-known opera selections with connections to Paris. As we tour famous locations in Paris, Fleming takes us through the beloved city to spots that influence arts and culture and importantly those with a personal connection to her. She is joined by designer Alexis Mabille and director Robert Carsen in this love-letter to the culture of Paris and the music born from it! Renée Fleming’s Cities That Sing is directed by French music director Francois-Rene Martin, director of many live orchestra / opera specials and live TV events previously, including this year’s Grand Concert Camille Saint-Saëns and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Idomeneo, Rè di Creta. Written by James Inverne. Cities That Sing will debut in select IMAX theaters starting September 21st, 2022 along with a “one-night-only” event September 18th featuring Renée Fleming in conversation with Kelsey Grammar.
