Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
Nice, in a Lang Lang way … but this is the video that’s gone “viral” in opera terms. And it’s funny.
Renee Fleming sings the David Letterman Top Ten List – Opera Lyrics (rewritten).
I believe this is the first appearance of an opera singer on late night US tv since Fleming appeared on one of them 5 or more years ago, and before that, it had been even longer. Letterman has about 5-8 million viewers.
Advantage Ms. Fleming…
