Wales' Natalya Romaniw performs Allons! Il le faut! ...Adieu, notre petite table from Massenet's Manon, in concert four of the 2009 competition.

Manon is giving up her lover, des Grieux, having been persuaded by her opportunistic brother that she will be better off with the rich nobleman, de Brétigny. She sings a poignant farewell to the little table, which symbolised the life she shared with des Grieux in their apartment.
