Virginia Zeani and Placido Domingo in "Manon Lescaut"

This clip of Virginia Zeani and Placido Domingo singing the finale of Manon Lescaut is one of my favourite things on YouTube. And if have no idea what they are singing about, how about catching the live performances that will open on 31 August 2012 in Singapore to find out?

  1. I am glad you enjoy this thrilling performance. There are many more Virginia Zeani postings on my YouTube channel CharlotteinWeimar including one in which she describes their first Manon Lescaut performance and how they were so emotionally drained at the end that they could barely get up to take the curtain calls. There is much more information too on her website www.virginiazeani.com. She was a truly wonderful, exciting singer and nowadays not nearly well enough known. Thanks to YouTube and blogs such as yours, this is gradually being rectified.

    Best wishes from CharlotteinWeimar
