The MET: Live in HD – Renée Fleming in the title role of Handel’s Rodelinda from the Metropolitan Opera Saturday, December 3 at 12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT

Renée Fleming returns to The Met: Live in HD in one of her greatest roles, the title character in Handel’s Rodelinda.
In this Baroque showpiece, Fleming plays a queen who must fight treacherous enemies to keep her son safe and the memory of her exiled husband alive.
Handel’s score gives her the opportunity to sing some of the most beautiful and challenging arias in her extensive repertoire.
The all-star supporting cast includes two of the world’s most prominent countertenors, Andreas Scholl and Iestyn Davies, as the exiled king Bertarido and his friend Unulfo; versatile mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe as the noblewoman Eduige; Joseph Kaiser as the usurper Grimoaldo; and Shenyang as Grimoaldo’s corrupt advisor, Garibaldo.
Baroque specialist Harry Bicket, who led the 2004 Met premiere of Stephen Wadsworth’s fast-paced, fluid production, conducts.
Deborah Voigt hosts the transmission.
