About the DVD

Soprano Renée Fleming and baritone Thomas Hampson lead the cast in this production of Massenet's opera, conducted by Jesús López-Cobos, and performed by New York's Metropolitan Opera.

...she is entirely convincing as a flirtatious and seductive courtesan for whom even a monk might risk his soul. She looks, moreover, as if she is genuinely enjoying her role and the final showy flourishes with which she rounds off her big arias justifiably have the audience at her feet.
