MANON LESCAUT – Royal Opera House

07/29/2014 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

| $20

180 min | NR
This early Puccini masterpiece makes a welcome return to Covent Garden after an absence of over 20 years, in a highly anticipated new production by Jonathan Kent under the baton of Music Director Antonio Pappano. The exciting Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais sings the title role of Manon Lescaut, the bold but impressionable heroine. A consummate Puccini soprano, Opolais caused a sensation as Madama Butterfly in 2011. She is matched in star power by Jonas Kaufmann as her lover, Des Grieux, and Christopher Maltman as her cynical brother Lescaut.
