OPERA NIGHT WITH PAUL HERRIOTT

Nino Machaidze and Juan Diego Florez in Manon Image Name: Nino Machaidze and Juan Diego Florez in Manon Description: Nino Machaidze and Juan Diego Florez in Manon

Exhilarating soprano Nino Machaidze stars as the irresistible title character, the tragic beauty who yearns for the finer things in life. Tenor Juan Diego Florez is the besotted Chevalier des Grieux, whose desperate love for Manon proves their undoing. Frederic Chaslin conducts Massenet’s sensual score with the Vienna State Opera Orchestra and Chorus in a recording of the Vienna production from June this year.
