Giacomo Puccini’s Manon Lescaut

Kristine Opolais is the young woman whose conflicting desires for love and luxury lead to her tragic end, and Roberto Alagna plays the man who falls for her in Puccini’s early hit.

Richard Eyre’s elegant production, which sets the action in the 1940s occupied France, was one of the highlights of the Met’s 2015-16 season.

Massimo Cavalletti starts as Manon’s brother and Brindley Sherratt as her aging admirer co-star.

Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
