Manon Lescaut, Puccini's first major success, is a work of impassioned emotions based on the 18th-century novel by Abbé Prévost, depicting the doomed infatuation of Chevalier des Grieux for beautiful, fun-loving Manon. Puccini clothes the story in warmly passionate music that makes a direct appeal to the listener's emotions. Featuring Patrick Denniston, Adina Nites Cu, Roberto De Candia and more.
