Renée Fleming in an undated file photo by Andrew Eccles/DECCA.
Following yesterday’s article about Renée Fleming’s sold-out Schubert Club concert, our staff have collected a series of photographs of past performances and publicity appearances by Ms. Fleming. These photos document the sometimes extensive lengths to which fans of Ms. Fleming will go to hear her beguiling soprano voice live in sparkling acoustics, dazzling theatres, and glamorous destinations.
Would-be concert infiltrators are advised that ushers at the Ordway have been trained in parkour, spotting concert infiltrators, unarmed combat, and disabling cell phones and cameras from a distance with carefully thrown shuriken.
The Twin Cities Arts Reader advises all concertgoers to abide by local laws, venue rules, and usher instructions when attending performances. Covert infiltrations are not recommended and in-concert photography and cell phone use is strictly discouraged.
