I gave it one star to draw attention to Kultur/Warner's abysmal standards (the Kultur and Warner releases are identical). The new 1997 Vick Manon Lescaut Blu-ray from Glyndebourne on Kultur/Warner is also in mono only! Beware of any future Kultur/Warner re-releases in blu-ray.
I have given this five stars because the production is very good and especially because the cast is absolutely outstanding. Roberto Alagna acts and sings brilliantly in the title role. Karita Mattila and Waltraud Meier in the two female roles look wonderful and act and sing to perfection. The other two male roles are filled by Jose van Dam as Philip and Thomas Hampson as Rodrigue, both of whom are outstanding. It is really a dream cast on top form. It is also quite rare to find a cast that all look the part.
The voices are well recorded but the orchestra only adequately. My one reservation is that for a lot of the time the synchronization between lip movements and sound is slightly off. This is an irritating distraction.
However, on the whole, a must have production.
