Performer: Victoria de los Angeles. Conductor: Pierre Monteux. Composer: Jules Massenet, Claude Debussy, Hector Berlioz. Audio CD (April 10, 2001). No one has made so real and tragic Manon's death as Victoria de Los Angeles does in this recording. With the beauty and sincerity of her singing, the vulnerability of Manon's love of des Grieux and desire for wealth becomes painfully real as we realize the inevitable price of such passion. His 'Ah, fuyez douce image", surpassing any other rendition of this aria I have every heard including Nicolai Gedda's, opens with a beautiful pianissimo and plea that is shatteringly stunning
Manon (French pronunciation: ) is an opéra comique in five acts by Jules Massenet to a French libretto by Henri Meilhac and Philippe Gille, based on the 1731 novel L’histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by the Abbé Prévost

Pierre Monteux was born in Paris, the third son and the fifth of six children of Gustave Élie Monteux, a shoe salesman, and his wife, Clémence Rebecca née Brisac. The Monteux family was descended from Sephardic Jews who settled in the south of France. The Monteux ancestors included at least one rabbi, but Gustave Monteux and his family were not religious. The Met at that time typecast conductors according to their nationality, and, as a Frenchman, Monteux was not offered any Italian operas .
