Program

An encore performance of Puccini's Manon Lescaut will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, March 9.

The Met stage ignites when soprano Kristine Opolais and tenor Jonas Kaufmann join forces in Puccini's obsessive love story. Opolais sings the title role of the country girl who transforms herself into a Parisian temptress, while Kaufmann is the dashing student who desperately woos her. Director Richard Eyre places the action in occupied France in a film noir setting. "Desperate passion" is the phrase Puccini himself used to describe the opera that confirmed his position as the preeminent Italian opera composer of his day. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the stirring score.

Director: Sir Richard Eyre
Writer: Giacomo Puccini, Domenico Oliva and Luigi Illica
Cast: Fabio Luisi, Kristine Opolais, Jonas Kaufmann, Massimo Cavalletto and Brindley Sherratt
