About

Renée Fleming, "America's most-loved and most-lauded opera singer" (The Times, London) returns to the San Francisco Opera, bringing passion and outstanding virtuosity to the title role of Gaetano Donizetti’s masterpiece, joined on stage by Michael Fabiano, Vitalij Kowaljow and Elizabeth DeShong.

In Gaetano Donizetti’s two act opera, Lucrezia Borgia (libretto by Felice Romani, based on Victor Hugo’s play of the same name), a notorious femme fatale renowned for her ruthless pursuit of power reveals poignant vulnerability when she comes face to face with her long-lost son, Gennaro.

Presented in 2011, this captivating and elegant production from the San Francisco Opera is led by internationally-acclaimed Italian conductor, Riccardo Frizza.
