Many thanks to our friend from Lake Michigan. Puccini’s Manon Lescaut is an Italian lyric tragedy drama. The opera is centered on Manon Lescaut (Montserrat Caballé), a beautiful young girl about to be sent to a convent. When Chevalier Des Grieux (Placido Domingo) sees her the flame of passion between them is ignited. Manon’s life is a winding one: seduced by riches that ultimately trigger her downfall but ultimately finding redemption in Des Grieux’s love for her. Conductor Bruno Bartoletti leads the New Philharmonia Orchestra as they traverse Puccini’s gorgeous melodies that permeate the opera, from Manon’s poignant arias to the lush orchestral score.
