Renée Fleming in Budapest for Hungarian State Opera Concert

The soprano made an appearance at the U.S. Embassy as a guest of Ambassador Eleni Tsakopoulos Kounalakis to discuss the importance of funding the arts and stressed the positive effects for young singers to learn more about each other around the world through technology. Other guests included soprano Erika Miklósa, dancer Popova Aleszja, conductor György Ráth Győriványi, baritone Ádám Horváth, film directors István Szabó and Csaba Káel, Hungarian film commissioner Andrew G. Vajna, folk singer Márta Sebestyén and businessman Gábor Kovács. She also did a bit of sight-seeing and claims to be charmed by Budapest. [Source]
