Description

Following the artistic and commercial success of their last DVD project, La Traviata from the 2005 Salzburg Festival, opera superstars Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón bring their combined talents to Jules Massenet’s Manon.

This is a production with a distinct Hollywood touch: first-time opera director Vincent Paterson has previously worked with Madonna, Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney and staged several Broadway musicals. Given his show-business background, Paterson interprets Manon as a Hollywood cinematic tale for the opera stage with Massenet’s colourful music as a kind of soundtrack.

Musically, the production is equally accomplished. The Staatskapelle Berlin is conducted by Daniel Barenboim, who “infuses the appealing melodies with colour and is finely attuned to the emotional fragility they express” (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
