Who can resist the charms of Manon or remain unmoved by her fate? Ruth Ann Swenson takes on Massenet's title heroine, the equally beautiful and high-spirited young girl who turns her back on life in a convent when she meets the handsome des Grieux (Giuseppe Sabbatini)--only to be seduced by the promise of a luxurious existence as the mistress of the rich old Brétigny (Kim Josephson). When she learns that des Grieux, desperate she has left him, is about to take holy orders, she changes her mind--but it is too late, and their love story ends in tragedy

"Angela Gheorghiu has long cherished an ambition to record one of Puccini's best-loved roles; that of Cio-Cio-San, the Japanese 'Butterfly' who will eventually be broken.

There's a good reason La traviata is one of the best-known, and best-loved, operas of all time. Verdi's exquisite music conveys every bit of emotion felt by the gorgeous, successful Parisian courtesan Violetta (Angela Gheorghiu). From the frenzy of her pleasure-filled life, to the suddenness with which she falls in love with handsome young Alfredo (Jonas Kaufmann in his Met debut season and role), to the heart-rending decision to leave him for the sake of his family--Verdi's opera tells of true love, taken to its altruistic, poignant height. Anthony Michaels-Moore is Alfredo's manipulative father, Germont
