On tap at L.A. Opera is a production of A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE starring operatic superstar, Renee Fleming.

Back in 1998, Fleming appeared in San Francisco Opera's world premiere of STREETCAR. Now, on May 18, 21 and 24, Fleming will reprise her role of Blanche DuBois at the Dorothy Chandler pavilion in a semi-staged concert format. Patrick Summers will conduct
Andre Previn's score. The cast also includes Ryan McKinny as Stanley Kowalski, Stacey Tappan as Stella, and Anthony Dean Griffey as Mitch, a role he created at the world premiere.

"The role of Blanche DuBois is always a thrilling challenge," said soprano Fleming. "She is an iconic character of the American stage, and as realized for the opera by my cherished friend and Hollywood legend, Andre Previn. I think she's compelling in new ways, for new audiences."
