Description

'Manon', wrote Puccini to his publisher Giulio Ricordi in 1889, 'is a heroine I believe in and therefore she cannot fail to win the heart of the public'. This turned out to be a truly prophetic statement, since none of Puccini's other world successes were received on their first night as rapturously as Manon Lescaut. The popularity of Puccini's great masterpiece has never waned and the highly acclaimed Götz Friedrich production at the Royal Opera House was hailed as an operatic milestone. Two of the world’s leading stars, Kiri Te Kanawa and Plácido Domingo, head a strong cast, conducted by the brilliant Italian conductor Giuseppe Sinopoli.
