Puccini's Manon Lescaut

Witness the flaring of love in Puccini’s dramatic musical triumph.

Manon Lescaut was Puccini’s first great success.

Manon’s life has taken a dramatic turn – bound for a convent, she escapes into a whirlwind romance with the young student Des Grieux. When he can’t provide the life she wants, she leaves him for the rich and powerful Geronte. But wealth and luxury can never replace the passion she shared with her lost first love.

Sung in English with captions.
