This performance of an excerpt from Cilea's opera Adriana Lecouvreur derives from the 2007 Tucker Gala. Fleming's humorous complaint at the beginning refers to an "extrovert" (to put it mildly) performance of "Glitter and be gay" by Diana Damrau (you can see what she means here:
The other big aria from this opera "Io son l'umile ancella" has been a staple of Fleming's career, so it is interesting to hear her in this rarer selection, even if it's not her most polished singing. She recorded it in the studio with Gergiev in 2006, but this is a more overtly dramatic reading, perhaps in competition with what came immediately before in the concert!
