The film of L'Histoire de Manon, was directed by Cédric Klapisch and co-directed by Miguel Octave on 18 May 2015. This exceptional evening marked the farewell of Aurélie Dupont as prima ballerina of the Paris Opéra Ballet.

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.

Sonya Yoncheva is one of today's fastest rising young opera stars. The young Bulgarian soprano first gained international prominence when she took first prize in the 2010 edition of Plácido Domingo's prestigious Operalia competition at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan. She has collaborated with many artists from the world of opera, and also cross genres: with names from the rock and pop world such as Sting and Elvis Costello, as well as with outstanding classical musicians like Plácido Domingo and Jonas Kaufmann. 'Paris, mon amour' was recorded in one of Europe's most prestigious concert halls - the Palau de la Música in Valencia, under the baton of renowned conductor Frédéric Chaslin. This debut album concentrates on a particularly appealing period, the 'Belle Époque' 1871 to 1914. of cultural life. The 'Belle Époque' eminently suits Sonya, who communicates both elegance and panache onstage, both in her distinctive, multicolored voice and her irresistible personality. Forthcoming residency at the Royal Opera House London in 'Verdi 'La Traviata' - Violetta'. 'OPERA' magazines 'Record Of The Month' for May. The Guardian quotes 'Sonya Yoncheva is surely a star in the making'.

With Joyce DiDonato as Cinderella capturing all hearts - not just Prince Charming's - Massenet's enchanting, sophisticated retelling of the classic fairytale makes its debut at Covent Garden in a charming and witty production by Laurent Pelly.

The Cinderella story seen through the eyes of the belle époque, Massenet's Cendrillon was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris in 1899 and its gorgeous score embraces pathos, pastiche, broad humour, subtle eroticism and sheer magic.

Neglected for much of the 20th century, this entrancing and often surprising opera has found a firmer place in the repertoire over the past 30 years. In Summer 2011 its debut at London's Royal Opera House was built around mezzo soprano Joyce DiDonato, who first took on the title role at the Santa Fe festival in 2006; there, as at Covent Garden, the staging was by French director Laurent Pelly, celebrated for his production of Donizetti's La Fille du regiment with Natalie Dessay and Juan Diego Flórez (Virgin Classics DVD 5099951900298).

The décor is inspired by a venerable volume of Charles Perrault's fairy tales bound in red morocco leather, and the dominant colours are white, black and crimson, though mauve is chosen for the body-hugging gown worn by the voluptuous, capricious Fairy Godmother of Eglise Gutierrez as she scales spellbinding coloratura heights.

Set in Egypt, Massenet's drama 'Thais' (1894) traces the ill-fated attempt of the monk, Athanaël, to rescue the soul of the celebrated Alexandrian courtesan, Thaïs. Though she is presently living with his wealthy friend Nicias, Athanaël persuades her to renounce her way of life and riches, but as she dies in the desert in a state of grace, he realises he has succumbed to her worldly charms and begs God for mercy.

Renée Fleming triumphs as the glamorous courtesan Thaïs in Massenet's romantic tragedy set in fourth century Alexandria and the Egyptian desert. The timeless struggle between earthly desire and spiritual redemption finally destroys the resolve of the monk Athanaël (Thomas Hampson), just as the newly penitent Thaïs ascends heavenward. Jesús López-Cobos gives a masterly performance of Massenet's sensuous score, with concert master David Chan contributing a ravishing 'Méditation'.

The first Met staging in over 30 years of Massenet's Thaïs is released on a starry DVD sure to win this beguiling French opera many new fans.

Renée Fleming is Thaïs to the life. She sings Massenet's taxing role with the utmost ease and beauty of tone while looking as glamorous as her famous predecessors.

Fleming's co-star is the great American baritone Thomas Hampson in the role of Athanaël, a part he sings and acts with mastery.
