Cat. No: DV-OPMANON (re-release)

  • TDK re-presents an exceptional Manon from the Opera Paris on DVD in brand new packaging.
  • With American star soprano Renée Fleming in the many-faceted title role, Argentinean tenor Marcelo Álvarez opposite her and Spanish opera conductor Jesús López-Cobos, this production provides first-rate listening and viewing of a masterpieces of French opéra lyrique.
  • The staging by Gilbert Deflo offers splendid historical costumes by William Orlando, sophisticated lighting, opulent ballet dancing and colourful mass scenes. The minimal décor of darkly shaded abstract backdrops further accentuates the magnificent, colourful costumes – thus shifting the focus onto the interaction between the characters of the drama. This is supported by the close-up filming, so that the viewer can actually experience an intimate filmed drama.
