Patricia Petibon and pianist Susan Manoff pay tribute to the scandalous Déjeuner sur l'herbe [Luncheon on the Grass] by Édouard Manet in a performance that entwines passion and abandonment.

Patricia Petibon and her accompanist Susan Manoff, two of the finest specialists in French song, imagine the journey of the mysterious naked woman in Édouard Manet's painting, first an object of desire then a victim of abandonment.
