One of the greatest tragic tales of literature and music is the story of Manon, from the innocent peasant to the famous courtesan to the helpless prisoner. Lisette Oropesa plays the irresistible main character, the tragic beauty who aspires to the most beautiful things in life, in the evocative production of Laurent Pelly. Michael Fabiano is the madly in love Knight of the Grieux, whose desperate love for Manon leads to their loss. Maurizio Benini conducts the sensual score of Massenet.
Distribution: Lisette Oropesa, Michael Fabiano, Carlo Bosi, Artur Rucinski, Brett Polegato, Kwangchul Youn.
