MANON

"With her rich, gleaming sound and vocal charisma, Netrebko was a Manon of rare intensity and emotional depth"

New York Times

Star soprano Anna Netrebko sings her first Met performances of the title role in Manon, Massenet’s opera about a country girl with conflicting desires for love and luxury who is drawn into a life of glamorous—but hollow—Parisian sophistication. Piotr Beczala co-stars as the Chevalier des Grieux, a young nobleman who falls in love with Manon; Paulo Szot sings the role of Lescaut, Manon’s protective cousin who struggles with temptations of his own; and David Pittsinger sings the Comte des Grieux, who wants his son out of Manon’s arms and into a respectable future. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads Massenet’s passionate opera, seen in a stylish new production by Laurent Pelly.
