Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

On the Naxos issue, Miriam Gauci gives one of the most sensitive performances of this role on any set. The young Bulgarian, Kaludi Kaludov, is a clean-cut, virile Des Grieux, opening up impressively in his big moments. Vincente Sardinero makes a powerful Lescaut, and Rahbari is a red-blooded interpreter of Italian opera, generally pacing well, even if at the very start he is disconcertingly hectic. This is the least expensive Manon Lescaut in the catalogue but, even if it cost more, it would still be very recommendable.
