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.
