Renee Fleming's operatic 'Top 10 List' is hilarious hit on Letterman

Without question, opera superstar Renee Fleming, who serves as the Lyric Opera of Chicago’s creative consultant, delivered one of the best-ever “Top 10” lists on David Letterman’s “The Late Show” on CBS Wednesday night. Using well-known aria trills Fleming used her glorius voice to deliver great zingers about everything from Miley Cyrus’ twerking to Pope Francis’ comments on gays to all the potential 2016 presidential candidates.

Recently, Fleming showcased her comedic abilities when the Lyric and Second City teamed up in June for the special “Second City Guide to the Opera” at the Civic Opera House.

Fleming’s new CD, “Guilty Pleasures,” is in stores now.
