23 Feb 2012
Famed American soprano Renée Fleming will be featured in a special intimate concert live from the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse April 6 at 9 PM.
PBS will broadcast the evening as part of its Live From Lincoln Center series.
Featuring the rarely performed American masterpiece, "Knoxville Summer of 1915" by Samuel Barber, the program also marks the first New York concert performance of songs from Fleming’s acclaimed new pop and indie-rock album, "Dark Hope."
Fleming will also perform Broadway favorites and duets with popular vocalist Josh Groban, who was seen on both sides of the Atlantic in concert stagings of Chess.
Live From Lincoln Center is in its 36th broadcast season and has received 13 Emmy Awards. Produced by Lincoln Center’s John Goberman, it is the only series of live performing arts telecasts on American television today. ￼
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
