The book is dedicated 'to Rupert Hart-Davis, my old friend'. AR reviewed Fleming's A Forgotten Journey in the Spectator, 8th November, 1952. The two men were friends. After a long and exciting day receiving his CBE, celebrating and dining, AR went finally to the Garrick to play billiards with Fleming. AR retained the full range of Fleming's books in his library; Invasion 1940 is a presentation copy by the author to AR inscribed 'to the glory of slosh'. Correspondence from Fleming to AR survives – almost always trying to set up a game of chess: 14th October 1949, Fleming to AR from Henley on Thames: 'My dear Spindlecue' pulverize you at chess 'see no prospect of visiting your barbarous and prudently obscure hide-out this season.'

Considerato un classico dei libri di viaggio del Novecento, "Avventura brasiliana" non è un semplice resoconto, ma un'irresistibile mescolanza di generi: dalla spy story al romanzo umoristico, dal saggio antropologico non ortodosso al teatro shakespeariano al cinema. È questo l'esordio in letteratura di Fleming, autore di altri libri di viaggio, e agente segreto durante la Seconda guerra mondiale. Venticinque anni dopo la spedizione in Brasile, il fratello minore di Peter, Ian, inventerà un personaggio mitico della letteratura d'evasione: James Bond, l'agente con licenza di uccidere, disegnandolo su molte delle idiosincrasie, dei tratti distintivi e delle imprese avventurose dell'allora più famoso Peter.

The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met’s recent Falstaff, places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.

The great Renée Fleming stars as the beguiling femme fatale who captivates all Paris in Lehár’s enchanting operetta, seen in a new staging by Broadway virtuoso director and choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers, Oklahoma!, Contact). Stroman and her design team of Julian Crouch (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island) and costume designer William Ivey Long (Cinderella, Grey Gardens, Hairspray) have created an art-nouveau setting that climaxes with singing and dancing grisettes at the legendary Maxim’s. Nathan Gunn co-stars as Danilo and Kelli O’Hara is Valencienne. Sir Andrew Davis conducts.

In 1925 Colonel P. H. Fawcett embarked on a journey into a dangerous and largely unexplored region of Brazil in search of a fabled lost city and was never seen again. Journalist Peter Fleming's interest in Fawcett's disappearance led him to answer an advertisement to join an expedition to explore the rivers of Brazil with the aim of ascertaining the explorer's fate. Though Colonel Fawcett's disappearance remains a mystery to this day, Peter Fleming's wild adventure in the jungles of Brazil is recognized as one of the 20th century's best-loved travel classics.

23.04.2011 at the Met, Ms. Fleming sang the Countess in Strauss’s “Capriccio,” her first performance of the complete role at the house. (She sang the great final scene in the Met’s season-opening gala in 2008.) The role suits her ideally at this stage of her career, and she sang splendidly. The performance over all, sensitively conducted by Andrew Davis and featuring a winning cast, made an excellent case for this Strauss curiosity, his final opera, which had its premiere in Munich in 1942.
