English Touring Opera presents: Manon Lescuat


Director: Jude Christian

Conductor: Gerry Cornelius

Manon Lescaut was Puccini’s first great success, portraying the flaring of love in a dramatic and musical triumph.

Manon’s life has taken a dramatic turn – bound for a convent, she escapes into a whirlwind romance with the young student Des Grieux. When he can’t provide the life she wants, she leaves him for the rich and powerful Geronte. But wealth and luxury never can’t replace the passion she shared with her lost first love.

Performed in English.
