Summary:
The legendary Renata Tebaldi had a special affinity for Puccini. It wasn't only that her rich, mahogany sound delivered his soaring vocal lines so beautifully, that her voice would rise triumphantly over the most dramatic orchestral climaxes, or soar in the most haunting pianissimo. It was also that she gave every word its own special timbre, making you feel every bit of her character's emotion. In this broadcast, she calls on each of these vocal resources to portray Manon Lescaut, a passionate young girl overwhelmed by her conflicting desires.

Ave, sera gentile
Tra voi, belle, brune e bionde
Ma bravo! Ma bravo!
Cortese damigella il priego mio accettate
Donna non vidi mai
La tua ventura ci rassicura
Un asso
Un fante
Un tre!
La tua Proserpina
Vedete? Io son fedele
Di sedur la sorellina è il momento
Cavalli pronti avete?
Dispettosetto questo riccio!
In quelle trine morbide
Poichè tu vuoi saper
Che ceffi son costor? Sulla vette tu del monte
Paga costor!
Minuetto
Vi prego, signorina
L'ora, o Tirsi, è vaga e bella
Oh, sarò la più bella ; Tu, tu amore? Tu!
Oh tentatrice!
Ah!
Affè, madamigella
Senti, di qui partiamo
Ah, Manon, mi tradisce
Lescaut?! Tu qui?!
Intermezzo: The imprisonment ; The journey to l'Havre
Ansia eterna, crudel

e Kate rispose al Re
All'armi! All'armi!
Il passo m'aprite
Rosetta! Eh, che aria!
Presto! In fila! Marciate! No! Pazzo son!
Tutta su me ti posa
Manon, senti, amor mio
Vedi, vedi, son io che piango
Sola perduta, abbandonata
Fra le tue braccia, amore.
