Opéra comique in five acts after Abbé Prévost

Musical direction: Emmanuel Villaume
Production: Andrei Serban

Manon, who feels irresistibly attracted to wealth, is on her way to the convent. She falls in love with the Chevalier Des Grieux - and he with her. But their time together is short-lived, as Manon gives in to the courtship of the rich Brétigny. This does not last long either, and she soon returns to her beloved Des Grieux. He wants to improve his financial situation by gambling. But he and Manon are arrested and she is exiled to America. However, the hardships in prison have broken her: she dies in Des Grieuxʼs arms on the way to the harbor.
