Met Opera: Manon

“Lisette Oropesa slips into the title role as if it were custom couture.” – New York Times

The Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of operas filmed live in high definition continues its 2019-20 season with Massenet’s tale of passion, excess, and their consequences.

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.
