About

This recording features Annick Massis as Manon and the tenor Alessandro Liberatore in his debut as De Grieux. Both artists are distinguished interpreters of the leading roles.

Manon is Massenet's most popular and enduring opera. Following its première, it quickly conquered the world's stages and has continued to maintain its important place in the repertory ever since. It represents the quintessential charm and vitality of the music and culture of the Parisian Belle Époque.

The opera became a mainstay of the Opéra-Comique in Paris, reaching its 1,000th performance there in 1919.
