Renee Fleming is releasing an album of musical theater songs, "Broadway." 
This isn't a total surprise, given her current gig in the "Carousel"
revival, and I admit I'm curious - though opera singers' success with
Broadway material has historically been inconsistent, to say the least. 
(Remember the fad for studio albums of classic musicals starring opera
singers 20-30 years ago?!  A definite mixed bag.)  The track listing, which
I'm copying below, does show some interesting repertory choices.
