Renee Fleming spoke out about her rumored retirement from the opera stage.

During an interview with PBS Night Hour, the diva said she would not be leaving the stage and said the New York Times’ article was “a very exciting headline” but in reality, she was saying goodbye to the Marschallin and to the bulk of the repertoire that she had sung at the Met.

She noted that her voice was still in great shape and that her schedule was not changing much because she still has a lot of projects coming. She has a project with Kevin Puts drawn from letters of Georgia O’Keefe and she will be making her broadway musical debut in “Carousel.” She will also be the voice of Julianne Moore in a film version of “Bel Canto.”

Fleming appears this weekend in her final performance of Strauss’ “Der Rosenkavalier” at the Metropolitan Opera before heading on a tour through Europe in Madrid, Vienna, and Paris.  She also headlines a gala on June 3, 2017 in Washington DC as well as concerts in Aspen and Santa Barbara.
