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.
