Manon Lescaut


Inspired by the novel of the same name by Abbé Prévost, Puccini achieved his first great triumph with Manon Lescaut. The story of the rise and fall of the courtesan Manon was written with a haunting music, faithful to the principles of the verisme. In this production Liudmyla Monastyrska “one of the most important voices of today“ (Beckmesser.com) has a “magnificent voice“ (Operawire), Gregory Kunde’s Des Grieux “is genuinely Puccinian“ (opera online) and “Carlos Chausson … offered a masterful performance“ (bachtrack). Conductor Emmanuel Villaume “provides a vehement and passionate musical reading.“ (El Mundo)
