Product description

In June 2014, Londonrsquos Royal Opera House presented Jonathan Kentrsquos new production of Manon Lescaut. With a stellar cast, including Krist─źne Opolais and Jonas Kaufmann in the roles of the young lovers Manon Lescaut and Chevalier des Grieux, Jonathan Kent brings this 19th century classic to a 2014 setting, both nonnaturalistic and theatrical. Supporting the action on stage is the Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, with their venerable Music Director Antonio br The Manon Lescaut DVD includes the bonus video feature, 'Who is Manon Lescaut?'br br ldquoFrom the moment Kaufmann and Opolais embark ndash with infinite delicacy on their emotional journey, it becomes clear that this is a vocal marriage made in heaven. His warmly burnished sound is balanced by the exquisitelynuanced purity of hers, and they are supported by a performance in the pit, under Antonio Pappano, of rare refinement.rdquo THE INDEPENDENTbr br ldquoExhibiting qualities from each of the Three Tenors mdash Pavarotti's gleaming tone, Carreras's good looks, Domingo's dramatic presence mdash Jonas Kaufmann is justifiably lauded as the outstanding tenor of our day. In Jonathan Kent's new production of Puccini's Manon Lescaut he delivers a thrilling performance that satisfies both musically and theatrically.rdquo LONDON EVENING STANDARDbr br ldquoAntonio Pappano has few peers today as a Puccini conductor, and gives the score a tremendous sense of vivid theatricalityrdquo THE GUARDIAN
