Recorded at Barcelona’s Teatro del Liceu over three evenings in June, 2007, David McVicar’s take on Massenet’s Manon, though it looks entirely traditional at first, is positively veristic with abundant hints of Puccini-era Manon. There is little above suspicion about our leading lady or her world. When we first meet her, she is indeed innocent looking, particularly in the person of.
Massenet Manon Villazon Mcvica (Bilingual) (Import). far as I know the only other version available on DVD is the 2007 Barcelona performance again with Villazon but Natalie Dessay as Manon.

Manon can drag if the conductor doesn’t keep the pace brisk. Maestro Luisi is in the midst of a conducting marathon. He’s on the podium 20 times this month. We were told in a text screen that this was a Met record. The Met orchestra as is now the norm played with brilliance except for one blown trumpet entrance.
