As in her first Callas à Paris recital, recorded two years previously, the diva performs arias of diverse weight, colour and mood - from the darker tones of Berlioz's Marguerite to the brilliant 'Jewel Song' of Gounod's Marguerite, and from the mezzo-ish melancholy of Massenet's Charlotte to the soprano coquetry of the same composer's Manon. 'Simply as an artist,' wrote Gramophone in its review of the recital, 'in her sense of line, her feeling for a word, her command of colour and her mastery of the whole complex art of interpretation - [Callas] is so far ahead of all other contemporary singers, and of all but the greatest past singers, too, that she almost spoils us for the rest.'

No matter what musical style, no matter what era, the repertoire of Manon Louis and Philippe Villafranca contains both classical and contemporary creations, work adaptations and adaptations as well as compositions written especially for the duo. The two performers design classical music, give it a new sound color, a new breath. Manon Louis leaves the typical, rather unobtrusive role of the harp and accompanies Philippe Villafranca in his lyrical reflections. Together they open up all the possibilities of these two instruments and leave room for creativity and harmony.

Sous la régence, période d'hédonisme succédant à l'austère fin de règne de Louis XIV, le chevalier des Grieux rencontre une belle adolescente: Manon Lescaut. Une passion irraisonnée naît entre les jeunes gens. Malgré son éducation rigoriste, des Grieux ne pourra résister aux penchants licencieux de Manon. L'inconséquence et la candide immoralité des deux amants vont les jeter dans des aventures qui aboutiront à leur déchéance. …

Kathleen Battle ended her operatic career on a sour note when she was fired from the MET, and this album somehow reflects that–it lacks her usual vivacity and joy. This is the only recital I've heard form her that's routine, and things aren't helped by the fact that her voice, a light colorature, isn't substantial enough for many of these arias, which are for a lyric soprano.

In 1974, British choreographer Kenneth MacMillan in turn decided to focus on the two protagonists for an ambitious ballet that could translate the feelings and emotions of two souls abused by the accidents of life and their own personal weaknesses. In short, how a young girl on her way to a convent manages to elope with the young student with whom she has just fallen in love, only to leave him to escape destitution and finally allow herself to be persuaded by her brother Lescaut to yield to the advances of wealthy “protectors”. Accused of prostitution and deported to Louisiana, Manon is rescued by Des Grieux. Driven to murder by Manon’s jailer, he escapes with her into the marshes where the young girl ultimately succumbs. Although sincere, the love that Manon and Des Grieux share for each other cannot stand up to the vagaries of existence. As a result, neither is able to escape moral or social decline. Rather than reuse the score of Massenet’s opera, MacMillan entrusted Leighton Lucas with the task of arranging a series of extracts taken from a selection of the French composer’s operatic, symphonic and vocal scores… The end result was a huge success from its debut performance in London in 1974 onwards.
