Manon Lescaut

by Giacomo PucciniBuxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Manon Lescaut is a dramatic and musical triumph and was Puccini’s first great success.

Based on a controversial book by the Abbé Provost, Manon Lescaut is a devastating depiction of a woman wrestling with her desire for love on her own terms, and the rigid double standards imposed on her by society. 

Jude Christian, fresh from a critically acclaimed Titus Andronicus at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, brings her incisive direction and a sharp, poetic new translation to the production, while ETO Music Director Gerry Cornelius conducts. 

Performed in English with English surtitles.
