Live streamLive stream

Massenet's 'Manon' is an opera in five acts to a French libretto by Henri Meilhac and Philippe Gille, based on the 1731 novel L’histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by the Abbé Prévost. De Brétigny, a nobleman, has just arrived, in the company of Guillot, an aging rake who is the Minister of Finance, along with three flirtatious young actresses. While the innkeeper is serving dinner to the party, the townspeople collect to witness the arrival of the coach from Arras. Among them is Lescaut, a guardsman, who tells his comrades that he plans to meet a kinswoman.

Performers: Nino Machaidze: Manon. Juan Diego Flórez: Des Grieux. Dan Paul Dumitrescu: Graf Des Grieux. Adrian Eröd: Lescaut.
