Fleming, 2009

In 2009, Fleming created the complete version of Le temps l'horloge, the latest work of famous French composer Henri Dutilleux. She sang Violetta at Covent Garden and Rusalka
Rusalka
at the Metropolitan Opera, the Marschallin at the Baden-Baden Festival, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées and the Metropolitan Opera. She sang a variety of short pieces at Napa Valley's Festival del Sole
Festival del Sole
in California. During the 2009/2010 Metropolitan Opera
Metropolitan Opera
season Fleming sang the Marschallin as well as in Mary Zimmerman's new production of Rossini's Armida, given for the first time by the Met. She returned to that role during the Met's 2010/2011 season, along with the Gräfin in Capriccio. 2010s[edit] In an April 15, 2010, Wall Street Journal article, Fleming talked about her view of the battle between opera traditionalists and those who want to reinterpret the standards, siding – with some reservations – with the latter. "I'm not a reactionary. I've loved some of [these productions] when they've been well thought out", she said. "I have no problem with edgy, as long as it's not vulgar or disrespectful of the piece." Still, she said her "classic" image meant that she was unlikely to be asked to perform in such productions.[57] In the same interview, Fleming explained her increasing preference for performing in concerts, rather than opera productions, and said, having learned more than 50 operas, that she is unlikely to learn many more.[citation needed] At the Last Night of the Proms
Last Night of the Proms
in London in 2010, Fleming performed songs by Richard Strauss, Dvořák and Smetana. That November, the Charlie Haden
Charlie Haden
Quartet West released the jazz CD Sophisticated Ladies in which Fleming was a guest vocalist on the song "A Love Like This" by Ned Washington and Victor Young
Victor Young
while in December, the Board of Directors of Lyric Opera of Chicago
Lyric Opera of Chicago
announced that Fleming has been named Creative Consultant, a first in the company’s history.[58] On June 18, 2014, Fleming performed as a guest of honour at Tokyo Global Concert at New National Theatre, Tokyo. It was her third visit to Japan after the previous one eight years ago. Roberto Abbado conducted Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra in the concert.[59][60] On May 13, 2017, Fleming performed the role of the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier for the last time at the Metropolitan Opera.[61] Fleming sang the role of Nettie Fowler in a 2018 Broadway revival of Carousel at the Imperial Theatre. In a related Q&A with reporter Michael Cooper, published March 7, 2018 in The New York Times[62], Mr. Cooper commented: "Renée, Obviously no one’s expecting you to become Ethel Merman. Nettie Fowler, your character in “Carousel,” has often been sung by people with experience on the opera stage." To which she replied: "Well, I’m the first soprano I’ve been able to find to do this." But Fleming's reply is inaccurate and misleading. For example, soprano Cheryl Studer sang the role in a new production of the work which premiered in December 2016 and which ran through May 2017 at Theater Basel, Switzerland.[63] Classical music journalist Norman Lebrecht picked up on the story.[64] Personal life[edit] Fleming married actor Rick Ross in 1989, and they have two daughters together: Amelia and Sage. The couple divorced in 2000.[2][65] On September 3, 2011, Fleming married corporate lawyer Tim Jessell, whom she met on a blind date set up by author Ann Patchett.[66] On May 28, 2015, Fleming was awarded an honorary Doctor of Music by Harvard University.[67] Popular recordings[edit]

She had performed the same song at Concert for America, which marked the first anniversary of 9/11.[73] Fleming was featured on the first episode of the second season of HBO Masterclass. She led a master class in which she taught and mentored four aspiring college-aged singers. She was featured on Charlie Haden's Sophisticated Ladies (EmArcy, 2010) singing "a Love Like This".
