Grammy-winning superstar soprano Renée Fleming’s “Cities That Sing: Paris” is a “first-of-its-kind” melding of IMAX and opera. Screened at select IMAX theaters on Sept. 18, the pre-recorded film will be rebroadcast at AMC River Park Square  on Sept. 21 at 7 p.m.

A celebration of Paris and “a captivating, majestic blend of classical music, history and discovery,” the production will give audiences all over the world the chance to experience a classical concert in a new way.

“IMAX is the perfect format for our one-of-a-kind film – it has the sheer scale to do justice to the expressive power of this art form,” Fleming said in a news release. “Opera is called grand opera for a reason: It’s larger than life. You’re incorporating every art –instrumental music, singing, drama, poetry – into one major art form: opera! It’s all there. So, what better way to see it, if you can’t see it live – or in addition to seeing it live – than on the largest screen possible?”

Alongside Fleming, the broadcast will showcase tenor Piotr Beczala and featured performers Axelle Fanyo and Alexandre Duhamel.
