FanFaire celebrates...
ANNA NETREBKO & ROLANDO VILLAZON
Duets by opera's "stardust twins"

from Manon: "Toi! Vous!" /"Oui, ce'est moi!"
               -"N'est-ce plus ma main"

Massenet's luscious and voluptuous music is matched by LA Opera's spectacular 2006 production by stage and screen director Vincent Paterson.  The story is of a girl who gets waylaid on her way to the convent, succumbing to young love and worldly pleasures, and the production is made even more dazzling by Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon's flawless performance (as Manon and des Grieux)- proving that their celebrated 2005 Salzburg appearance was not just an accidental speck of "stardust".  

One can bet good money that Manon will be among Anna Netrebko's signature roles, as will des Grieux - which marked his European debut at Genoa's Teatro Carlo Fenice - become Rolando Villazon's. Were the legendary conductor Sir Thomas Beecham still around to have seen this masterpiece, one could bet that he would gladly have given up more than "all the Brandenburg Concertos for Manon" as he once declared.
