The Metropolitan Opera Live - Manon Lescaut (Puccini)

  • Catamount Arts Center 115 Eastern Avenue Saint Johnsbury, VT, 05819 United States (map)

Tickets: $25 adults, $23 member, $16 students
The Met stage ignites when soprano Kristine Opolais and tenor Jonas Kaufmann join forces in Puccini’s obsessive love story. Opolais sings the title role of the country girl who transforms herself into a Parisian temptress, while Kaufmann is the dashing student who desperately woos her. Director Richard Eyre places the action in occupied France in a film noir setting. “Desperate passion” is the phrase Puccini himself used to describe the opera that confirmed his position as the preeminent Italian opera composer of his day. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the stirring score.
