A Time to Sing: An Evening with Renée Fleming and Vanessa Williams
About A Time to Sing: An Evening with Renée Fleming and Vanessa Williams
Thanks to Renée Fleming and Vanessa Williams — there’s still a way to visit the theater this holiday season.
Join the two divas for a night at the grand yet intimate Kennedy Center Opera House in Washington DC. Filmed live onstage and available to watch on demand now, this dynamic duo brings musical magic into the room alongside a spectacular band of players.
Watch as Fleming and Williams bring their one-of-a-kind talent to Stephen Sondheim favorites like “No One Is Alone” from “Into the Woods,” classics like “Over the Rainbow,” tunes from Sting and Joni Mitchell, a special rendition of “So Big, So Small” from “Dear Evan Hansen,” and more.
Fleming’s voice is one of the most applauded in opera and beyond; she gifts every song she sings with a power and uniqueness that no one else does. The four-time Grammy Award winner has performed for Queen Elizabeth II, as the first ever female solo performer at the Metropolitan Opera opening night gala, and now: for you.
Williams is the definition of a triple threat. Her decades in the entertainment industry has resulted in multiple Top 10 Billboard hits, 11 Grammy Award nominations, a Tony nomination, 3 SAG nominations, and so much more. Her voice and presence lights up the stage the second she enters any room — whether it be on a Broadway stage or in your living room via the television screen.
