Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Thomas Beecham stated once that he would "happily give up all the Brandenburg Concertos for Manon." He might also have thrown in a couple of Beethoven symphonies and the late Mozart operas if he had heard what Angela Gheorghiu makes of the title role; she's stunning. If you want a Manon who is transparently charming from the first note, whose venal flaws are presented with honesty and insight, whose final self-recrimination is heartbreaking, Gheorghiu is your woman. And when the dramatic portrayal is underpinned with that technique--pianissimo top notes, exquisite phrasing, powerful lower register, glorious full, rounded sound--it's impossible not to be drawn into this wonderful reading. Her husband, Roberto Alagna, if he doesn't quite have her silken tone, still is an excellent partner, and gives a real sense of des Grieux's early callowness being transformed by suffering into emotional maturity. Conductor Antonio Pappano draws some lush playing from the band, and sensibly avoids treating the 18th-century imitations as frivolous pastiche. From the lightness of the early comic scenes, it's almost possible to believe that the ending will be a happy one, such is the integrity of his approach--and it makes the terrible close all the more harrowing. --Warwick Thompson

Customer Reviews

The only Manon you will ever want to listen to.
K
Her voice itself continues to astonish with its beauty, its ability to be both light and dark at the same time creates the character as much as her vocal acting.
Joy Fleisig
The Manon of Angela Gheorghiu is every bit as convincing and as well sung as that of the legendary Victoria de los Angeles on the classic Monteux version.

It took almost 50 years but now it's here, an excellent recording of Manon. Massenet's masterpiece has been both lucky and unlucky on records. The 1953 Victoria de los Angeles/ Pierre Monteux recording is one of the finest opera sets ever made. Unfortunately no recording that came afterwards is even acceptable. The Julius Rudel version has Nicolai Gedda and Gerard Souzay on its favor, but Berverly Sills is shrill and mannered. The Plasson recording has the marvelous Des Grieux of Alfredo Kraus, but Ileana Cotrubas was caught in poor voice and she plays a rather plain, uninteresting Manon. I don't think Angela Gheorghiu has ever sung better. She understands the complex character of this not very likeable woman and sings in a ravishing full voice. The gavotte is sung with aplomb and panache, the death scene is never lachrymose or pathetic, even if she lacks that extra something that made Victoria de los Angeles unique, Gheorghiu is outstanding. Roberto Alagna is a youthful, passionate Des Grieux. Even if he is not as elegant as Kraus or Gedda he is always very, very good. The supporting cast is admirable, and if Pappano doesn't match the gallic flair of Monteux, his conducting is also superb. This is an important recording, they hardly make them this good anymore.

Format: Audio CD
While I prefer the intense, intimate, concentrated drama of `Werther', I becoming more and more taken with the gracious and elegant `Manon'. If this new recording, superbly conducted and magnificently sung with a virtually all Francophone cast, can't convince one of the opera's merit, I doubt if any could.
Angela Gheorghiu continues to grow exponentially as an artist with everything she does - her Manon surpasses even her legendary Violetta. Gheorghiu's characterization flows naturally from the music itself, and unlike many who have sung this role, she is totally unafraid of delving into Manon's dark side. Although Manon genuinely and passionately loves Des Grieux and shows true remorse at the end, she's also a selfish, superficial golddigger, and Gheorghiu realizes this. Her voice itself continues to astonish with its beauty, its ability to be both light and dark at the same time creates the character as much as her vocal acting. She gives Manon youth and coquettish innocence (far more effectively than her recorded Juliette), vulnerability, longing, wistfulness, insecurity, irresistable seductive powers, manipulativeness, manic money-hunger, and finally penitence and wisdom. She interacts superbly with all her colleagues, as much in the dialogue as in the sung passages, especially with, of course, her husband Roberto Alagna, with whom she has extraordinary chemistry. Also, her French diction is now nearly as good as that of the native Alagna. It's a pity, though, that in what seems like a note-complete version of the score (including the ballet), she doesn't get a chance to sing in an appendix the 'Fabliau' aria composed as an alternative to the Gavotte. Hopefully she'll record it at a later point.

This latest full opera recording from the dream team is nothing short of spectacular. After owning it for a few months and listening to it with the score in front of me, I have decided that its most remarkable feature is sheer detail. Each artist (in even the most minor role) executes a marvelous sensitivity to the written score and sings with a conviction that is mesmerizing. Pappano with his artistry and precision as an operatic conductor vividly sketches the insidious world of Manon.
Without a doubt the stars of this recording are the star-crossed lovers Manon and Des Grieux, ravishingly sung by Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna. Just when I thought they couldn't get any more incredibly passionate! This is recording that may even challenge their peerless La Rondine recording! I found Angela's Manon to be the most exquisite example of artistry since the great Callas recordings. Her interpretation of the doomed young thrill seeker is strikingly alluring and passionate, played with a great sense of forboding and later on, remorse. All of this is conveyed while still maintaining a gorgeous tone quality which is the ultimate in roundness and purity of tone! Alagna sings another thrillingly ardent romantic hero (Des Grieux) who hopelessly adores Manon no matter what. His tenor voice is more exciting and beautiful than ever. In this recording, the chemistry between these two is the most powerful I have ever heard. Just listen to the spoken dialogue in Acts One and Two, and the passionate dueting throughout the opera! I found the church scene (in Act Three) particulary to be the best interpretation of this scene that I have ever heard. Incredibly moving from beginning to end and exquisitely sung, this is a must have for anyone's opera collection.

This is a truly beautiful recorded rendition of Massenet's "Manon", led by a conductor who really knows how to make music. Antonio Pappano gives us a reading that is both stylish and atmospheric (with plenty of bouncy and brisk tempi in the beginning), and yet in the end, one that is dramatic and moving as well. The Manon of Angela Gheorghiu is every bit as convincing and as well sung as that of the legendary Victoria de los Angeles on the classic Monteux version. She has a unique color to her voice that enables her to make. The unique color in her voice enables her to make her operatic characters highly individual ---- and in the end, solely her own (has there been a soprano since Maria Callas of whom this could be said?). Her husband, Roberto Alagna, while possibly not on this exaulted level, still is a des Grieux to cherish. His voice still has the sound of youth (which cannot be said of Alfredo Kraus on the deleted EMI version with Ileana Cotrubas), and his singing stands as a model of lyricism and refinement. He is especially tender and moving in the final scene of the opera, and earlier, his singing of "Le Reve" is what legends are made of. This recording stands as an outstanding representation of Massenet's beautiful opera, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to hear this beautiful opera at its most opulent. It's a real winner!
