Massenet's most popular opera receives a sensational performance led by Pierre Monteux, the foremost French conductor of his time, who brings out all the elegance and Gallic flavor of this tuneful and sophisticated score.

But her infatuation with luxury eventually ruins them both and their story ends tragically
