While Angela Gheorghiu is still advertising her availability to the world of theatre, Renee Fleming has gone ahead and trodden those boards.
In a Pulitzer nominated play! With a Hollywood superstar at her side!
The occasion was an exclusive charity gig last night at Carnegie Hall - open only to those who'd delved deep, deep into their wallets to support the institution. The play was A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters - where a couple read out letters charting the history of their romance - and Renee's co-star was classical music cheerleader Alec Baldwin.
Below Renee and Alec pose with the play's author, A.R. Gurney.
