I don't follow classical music but recently, I came upon this piece which is an Opera performance on youtube and I loved the music. Its supposedly a piece called Manon by Jules Massenet. I love the music, especially the soothing revivifying violins in the beginning and it kind of gave me a spring start to my day when I played it in the morning. My problem, however is that when I look up for the song on google, it is giving me totally different pieces of manon by jules massenet, that don't sound like this one at all. I want to download or buy this particular song only in all its operatic fullness, with the same intro, but I need to know which song it really is.
Please help. I didn't want to open a new thread because I knew this existed and assumed one of you fans of classical music might help. Here is the video:
