Walk Away, Renee

Posted at 9:35 PM on January 14, 2007 by Valerie Kahler

Saw on the AP that Renee Fleming has had to bow out of the upcoming Toscanini tribute concert at Avery Fisher Hall due to illness. Bad tacos, probably. Anyway, the staff at AF will just have to peel one "e" off the dressing room door and make sure the towels say HIS instead of HERS as bass Rene Pape steps into the breach.
