About

Renée Fleming returns to one of her most celebrated roles as Desdemona in Verdi's Otello.

It is currently on at New York's Met, home to the world's most creative and talented opera artists and one of the highlights of the city's bustling cultural life. For Renée, there is nowhere like the Big Apple to enjoy the best cultural experiences on offer: "Everybody needs to have leisure time, and when I have it, I am a culture nut, so I go to the theatre… last night there was the opening of Carnegie Hall. I was at the opening of the Metropolitan Opera the other night, and it's a privilege to be in a city where so much is on offer. I am proud to be a New Yorker, I love what it has to offer," she says. "The beauty of New York is that shops are open all night, and we don't drive, we hop in a cab, and we can do pretty much everything on foot, so it's a great lifestyle, it's a healthy lifestyle."
