Manon Lescaut

Although Muti’s tempos are often slow and ponderous, both Guleghina and Cura are visually excellent and manage to convey the emotional aspects of the text dramatically. Cura is both visually and vocally first rate.
— Fanfare
The raison d’etre for the recording is probably the fame of [...] super-dude-tenor José Cura, and he does not disappoint. The voice is a hefty spinto, dark in color but very bright at the top [...]. The sound itself is very attractive and Cura sings off the text well, shading his phrases from time to time with real concern.
