Having Their Say: Women, Power + The Bard

Bard meets femme fatale

Renee Flemings takes on the the roles of William Shakespeare's powerful female characters and uses them as a jumping-off-point to create original material that tackles the same themes and issues contemporarily. Triumph, tragedy, and desire are a few motifs that Flemings explores through Joan of Arc, Queen Margaret and other female forces in this commanding solo performance. It may have us changing the famous saying to, "Frailty, thy name is man."
