A Streetcar Named Desire, with Renée Fleming as Blanche Dubois

By André Previn, based on the play by Tennessee Williams

Experience an evening of magic with the magnificent Renée Fleming '83E (MM), '11E (HNR) as the immortalized Blanche DuBois, in the role that was composed especially for her by André Previn. Blanche DuBois - the fading southern belle who retreats into fantasy to escape from the brutal reality in which she's forced to live. She's a wounded, haughty, vulnerable, delusional misfit - a woman who won't face the sensual side of herself and yet always succumbs to it. And when she moves in with her sister Stella and her sexually ruthless husband Stanley - worlds explode.

One of the most beloved and celebrated musical ambassadors of our time, soprano Renée Fleming captivates audiences with her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. Known as "the people's diva" the fourteen-time Grammy nominee and four-time award winner continues to grace the world's greatest opera stages and concert halls.

Tickets for the performance and reception are $70 for Main Floor-4 seats and $65 for First-Balcony-4 seats. If you have purchased performance tickets separately and wish to join us for the reception, admission is $15. The reception includes hearty hors d'oeuvres and an open beer and wine bar.
