Opera Grand Rapids Presents Manon Lescaut

It was the wild success of this, Puccini’s third opera, that launched the string of masterworks that made him the most popular composer in history. While traveling to a convent where she is being sent by her family, Manon Lescaut attracts the attentions of France’s very wealthy Royal Tax Collector. She escapes his clutches with the help of her true love, a handsome young student. But, the allure of living in luxury soon overwhelms her and she abandons love for riches. Her attempt to return to her true love comes, however, at the incalculable cost of deportment and her tragic demise in the New World. Puccini’s ravishing and poignant music will sweep you away with its rich and emotional power!
