Super Bowl Soprano Renee Fleming Returns To Her "Day Job"

Soprano Renee Fleming scored a touchdown in her pre-Super Bowl performance of The Star-Spangled Banner.

Opera star Renee Fleming speaks with WRTI's Jim Cotter in an exclusive interview.

Singing at The Metropolitan Opera rarely means just returning to "business as usual." But - for soprano Renee Fleming, the worldwide audience for the February 8th Met Opera radio broadcast and HD simulcast in which she stars will be small change compared to the millions who watched her recent pre-Super Bowl performance.

Here she speaks with WRTI's Jim Cotter in an exclusive interview. You can hear Renee Fleming singing the title role in Dvorak's RUSALKA on WRTI, Saturday, February 8th at 1 pm. Yannick Nezet-Seguin conducts.
