Manon, Vienna 3rd of March 2007

As promised, here is a great digital recording of a MANON given in Vienna a couple of days ago. The "hot couple" of the pic are Anna Netrebko and Roberto Alagna... I m not really into Alagna (well actually i enjoyed myself big time the incident at La Scala with the booeing and what followed) but i have to admit that he is really good singing the french repertoire (Faust, Romeo, Des Grieux, Cyrano etc) . Netrebko is a quite good singer that has also got the looks....And as the Austrian press commented the day after the premiere, she was a spectacular Manon!
So, here it is. I hope you enjoy:
