By Jules Massenet
Manon’s story, from innocent country girl to celebrated courtesan to destitute prisoner, is one of the great tragic tales in literature and music. Lisette Oropesa stars as the irresistible title character, a tragic beauty who yearns for the finer things in life, in Laurent Pelly’s revealing production. Michael Fabiano is the besotted Chevalier des Grieux, whose desperate love for Manon proves their undoing. Maurizio Benini conducts Massenet’s sensual score.
