IMAX Announces Release Dates for Venice & Paris Films in ‘Renée Fleming’s Cities That Sing’ Series

By David Salazar

IMAX has announced the new dates for “Renée Fleming’s Cities That Sing” series.

First up, “Cities that Sing: Paris” on August 26 for a one-day screening. Meanwhile, “Renée Fleming’s Cities That Sing: Venice,” will show on screens around the United States on September 16.

The feature-length films were produced by Tripp Hornick and Elmar Kruse, and directed by Francois-René Martin, using IMAX-certified cameras.

The films were announced for release last year, both set to screen in the fall of 2022.

“I’m always trying to bring opera and classical music to a wider audience. I’d been working with Stage Access, which produces, distributes, and licenses performing arts content, and we had this idea for a filmed series where performances of great vocal music would be surrounded with explorations of the legendary cities associated with the repertoire,” Fleming told OperaWire in an exclusive interview about the “Cities that Sing: Paris.” When we saw the opportunity to work with IMAX, and have this totally immersive cinema format in the classical arts space for the first time, it was something I wanted to explore.”
