Opera on Screen: Manon

Jpeg Manon Berlin Poster French High Res Sil 2



From “dream team” of the opera stage to “dream team” of classic and pop –Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón have long since conquered the entire world of music. Manon, the tragic heroine of Massenet’s work, is torn between flirtatiousness and profound love, between frivolity and deep commitment. Netrebko seems predestined for this role, with her body language alternating between girlish, introspective and carefree, and her voice radiating brilliance, warmth, mystery and longing. As the impoverished young nobleman Des Grieux, Rolando Villazón compellingly depicts the burning passion of an ultimately doomed lover with his glowing, supple, slender tenor voice. Conducted by Daniel Barenboim. Sung in French with subtitles. One interval and five acts.
