CRITIC REVIEW:

“Caballé’s ravishing voice, high pianissimi and astonishing breath control are a revelation. Though this CD transfer, like all CD transfers, does not give the warmth of vinyl, the sound is good, and you still get a pretty clear picture of what's happening here. Montserrat Caballé as Manon in her absolute prime. A young and passionate Plácido Domingo as Des Grieux in luscious voice and having no trouble with his high notes. Vicente Sardinero as Lescaut singing with a full, resonant baritone. All that combined with some of Puccini's most heartbreaking music, and you have just about the best musical experience you can enjoy this side of Heaven.”
