Review By Worcester Evening News,August 2000

"Opera amateurs may not have heard of some of the great composers' lesser-known works and may not want to jump in to one with both feet, wondering what on earth they are likely to get. Naxos has taken one such piece - Puccini's Manon Lescaut - and given listeners a 'taster', albeit a generous one of just over an hour. If you like what you hear, you can buy the whole work...

"Manon Lescaut may not be as well-known in the Puccini canon as Tosca, Madame Butterfly, or La Boheme, but it does have an important place in history. It was Puccini's first great success, made him known outside his own country and established him as a possible successor to Verdi."
