Renee Fleming has a rare combination of charm and grace and the kind of charisma on stage that Monroe and Loren had in movies.Fleming is an opera singer, which makes those qualities rarer still. Little wonder that her equally glamorous voice (fresh, full and effortless) and her fine acting skills have made her the most talked about lyric soprano of the last 10 years.And, as Fleming demonstrated Saturday in a sold-out Kennedy Center recital in the Washington Performing Arts Society Series, she's that rarity that Arturo Toscanini once called "a soprano with brains."
