Massenet
Manon

Massenet had a special gift for creating beguiling female characters that audiences can never get enough of—and that great sopranos long to perform. For many opera lovers, the enchanting but destructive Manon counts among his greatest achievements. Certainly Renée Fleming in the title role gives a dazzling tour de force: she’s equally at home with Manon’s spectacular coloratura singing and the gripping, overwhelming passion the character has for Des Grieux (Massimo Giordano).
