MANON

The Met presents Massenet’s sensual MANON starring Lisette Oropesa and Michael Fabiano.

Ever since graduating from the Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, Lisette Oropesa has had a meteoric career around the world, excelling in some of the pinnacles of the soprano repertoire. During the 2019–20 season, she returned to the Met stage to star in her largest role with the company to date, the irresistible heroine of Massenet’s Manon. As the young ingénue, Oropesa delivers a stunning performance, marked by brilliant coloratura, melting lyricism, and enchanting stage presence. Recorded as part of the Met’s Live in HD series of cinema transmissions, this performance also features tenor Michael Fabiano as the impetuous Chevalier des Grieux and baritone Artur Ruciński as Lescaut. Maurizio Benini is on the podium to lead one of the most passionate scores in the French operatic repertoire.
