Anna Netrebko in 'Manon'

Massenet's Manon will be performed on Saturday at a theatre near you -- Live in HD from the New York Met.

I have only had time to go out to the New York Times Review and read the article there.

It was there I found the names of the two most famous arias, so I found some utube links to those: Adieu, notre petite table and "En fermant les yeux."  There was a little too much French there for me, so I clicked on some more links and found the lyrics in English.  Then I had to go to utube and watch other famous sopranos sing "Adieu, notre petite table":  Natalie Dessay, Renee Flemming, Maria Callas, Beverly Sills ... and by now I was getting to know the tune quite well.

Should be fun on Saturday. 

In my community it is only playing at 10:00 am at the Scotia Cinneplex in Chinook Centre.

  1. Hi Arta,
    If you are going, maybe you could give Charise a call and see if she wants to go. I woud love to go here but I don't think I can get away for that long. And I do not drive yet and especially here in Austin.
