Diana Damrau sings the title role in Massenet’s Manon this month at the Vienna State Opera. This is quickly becoming a signature role for Ms. Damrau, whose portrayal at The Metropolitan Opera last season thrilled audiences and critics alike: “. . . an assertive Manon, jumping at every challenge. From her coltish Act I to the discovery of passion and then materialism, she nailed each phase in what Balzac called “les splendeurs et misères des courtisanes”; she also dramatized her character’s conflicts.” (Opera News)
