Renee Fleming To Return To Broadway in 2018

Jonathon Tichler

Renee Fleming is set to return to Broadway.

The New York Times is reporting that the people’s diva will perform in a revival production of Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Carousel.” Fleming, who will portray Nettie Fowler, is set to perform alongside Jessie Mueller as Julie Jordan and Joshua Henry as Billy Bigelow. Oscar-winning producer Scott Rudin and Roy Furman plan to revive the show next spring with Justin Peck, the 29-year-old dancer who is a resident choreographer of the New York City Ballet.

This would be Fleming’s second foray into the Broadway world. Two years ago she made her Broadway debut in the play “Living on Love,” in which she portrayed a celebrated opera diva who, after her husband—Vito DeAngelis —becomes enamored with his autobiography’s ghost writer, decides to hire her very own (and handsome) ghostwriter. Fleming is currently singing the Marschallin in Strauss’ “Der Rosenkavalier” at the Metropolitan Opera

“Carousel” is known as one of the greatest of American musicals. It originally opened on Broadway in 1945, and since then has seen four revivals.The most recent version was in 1994 and it won five Tony Awards, including the first of what is now six for Audra McDonald.

“Carousel” is slated to open on March 23, 2018.
