Notes & Reviews:
< i>Manon Lescaut, Giacomo Puccini's first major success, is a work of impassioned emotions based on the 18th-centruy novel by Abbe Prevost, 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 emotion.
Featuring Patric Denniston, Adina Nitescu, Roberto De Candia and more.
... humor is threaded through the action - Manon's Parisian retinue is a wonderful parade of high camp, and as events spiral toward her arrest the action moves with the deftness of French farce. It is faultlessly plotted.
