Puccini: Manon Lescaut

Album Summary

>Puccini, Giacomo : Manon Lescaut
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Perhaps the greatest May-December match-up in opera recording, this thrilling live performance of Manon Lescaut stars tenor Placido Domingo near the beginning of his career, in the youthful prime of his voice, and legendary soprano Magda Olivero ("The Queen of Verismo") in her 60th year as the young Manon. Live performance, 1970.
