RUN TIME: 4 HRS 5 MIN

Laurent Pelly’s new production stars Anna Netrebko as the free-spirited beauty Manon Lescaut in Puccini’s first hit opera. The story of the magnetic attraction between two young lovers is the perfect vehicle for the soprano’s exhilarating charisma, especially when matched by the ardent tenor of Piotr Beczala.  Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
