Manon (Jules Massenet) REVIVAL


October 26, 2019, at 12:55PM ET

Conductor: Maurizio Benini Production: Laurent Pelly

Set Designer: Chantal Thomas Costume Designer: Laurent Pelly Lighting Designer: Joël Adam Choreographer: Lionel Hoche

Cast: Lisette Oropesa (Manon), Michael Fabiano (Chevalier des Grieux), Carlo Bosi (Guillot de Morfontaine), Artur Ruciński (Lescaut), Brett Polegato (de Brétigny), Kwangchul Youn (Comte des Grieux)

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, the 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.
