    Renée Fleming is one of the most acclaimed singers of our time, performing on the stages of the world’s greatest opera houses and concert halls. Honored with five Grammy awards and the US National Medal of Arts, she has sung for momentous occasions from the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to the Super Bowl. In November she starred in the world premiere of the The Hours, a new opera based on the award-winning novel and film, at the Metropolitan Opera, and in March she appeared in a new production of Nixon in China at the Opéra de Paris. With Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Renée won the 2023 Grammy for Best Classical Vocal Solo, for Voice of Nature: the Anthropocene, an album focused on nature as both inspiration and victim of human activity. In January, she was awarded the 2023 Crystal Award at the World Economic Forum in Davos. A leading advocate for research at the intersection of arts and health, Fleming launched the first ongoing collaboration between the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the US National Institutes of Health. Among her awards are the Fulbright Lifetime Achievement Medal, Germany’s Cross of the Order of Merit, and France’s Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur.
