3/5/2016 - Manon Lescaut

Posted by Hayley Grigg on 03/11/2016

The 2015-16 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with a live broadcast of Manon Lescaut, the opera that was Giacomo Puccini’s breakthrough hit. The performance stars soprano Kristine Opolais as the impetuous title character, opposite tenor Roberto Alagna, who is making his role debut this season as Manon’s lover, Des Grieux. Fabio Luisi, the Met’s Principal Conductor, leads the performance, and the cast also features baritone Massimo Cavalletti as Manon’s brother, Lescaut, and bass Brindley Sherratt as Geronte, the wealthy man who takes Manon as his mistress. Manon Lescaut will be heard live over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 5.
