Yesterday night at the Met it was the Gala Premiere of the new Laurent Pelly's production of Massenet's masterpiece Manon starring the soprano Anna Netrebko in the tittle role and the tenor Piotr Beczala as the Chevalier des Grieux, both of them making their house role debuts. Tony Award-winning Paulo Szot sang the role of Lescaut and David Pittsinger was the Count des Grieux. On the podium, the Met's Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi.

 Manon is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera; Royal Opera House; Covent Garden, London; Teatro alla Scala, Milan and Thèâtro du Capitole, Toulouse. Anna Netrebko had previously sung the title role of Manon in Laurent Pelly's production at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in London in June/July 2010 and in Tokyo in September 2010, as part of a Royal Opera Tour to Japan. A nine-performance run starting on 26. March is scheduled now at the Met.

  1. ANNA NETREBKO!!!!DIVA TOTAL !! Tanto del canto lírico como de la dramaturgia y la belleza- Ninguna otra puede superarla en esta MANON y toda la puesta, la orquesta y los cantantes que la acompañaron estuvieron de 10. POITR BEZCALA me hizo olvidar a VILLAZÓN porque la que hizo con ALAGÑA, solo ella, no me llegó a gustar. Tengo a toda mi Familia, qie voy invitando por turno a estas fantásticas proyecciones del MET Live HD, embelezada con Anna.
