"It has become almost proverbial to claim that the American soprano Renee Fleming possesses the most beautiful voice in the world."
The Observer

The incomparable Renee Fleming takes on the mantle of Dvorak's tragic heroine this month, following her successes with last month's release of Massenet's Manon, also with Opera National de Paris.

Dvorak's operas have always been over-shadowed by his chamber music and orchestral works, above all by his Symphony No. 9, the New World symphony. The fact, however, that he wrote ten operas shows that he was determined also to make a name for himself on the stage, since under Austrian rule the theatre became the cultural focus of the burgeoning Czech national sentiment.

Here the role of the water nymph princess who takes on human form to be united with the mortal Prince she loves, with tragic consequences, forms a suitable vehicle for the celestial Fleming
