5.0 out of 5 stars Masterclass in Musicality and Acting, 22 Nov 2007
This review is from: Giacomo Puccini: Manon Lescaut - Royal Opera House 1983 [DVD] [2001] [NTSC] (DVD)
What chemistry these two have on stage. I just cant stop watching them! Domingo is in fine voice as is Te Kanawa. Act 4 is a joy to behold, has me in tears all the time. This definitely wins over the Met production which to me is overacted. I love scotto as a singer(beautiful to listen to) but her acting leaves a lot to be desired. I found myself cringing! Domingo overacts as well here. Domingo really feeds off his partners and here is a perfect example.

Wheras in the Covent Garden production both actors are perfectly comfortable with each other. The acting is superb leaving the singing to convey in glorious tones much of the emotion. Beautiful. The things that domingo can do with his voice are amazing when he is in this sort of form and te kanawa responds in kind.

This is the perfect Christmas present to reward yourself with. Sit back relax and enjoy!
