Summary
"Few operas have surpassed Manon Lescaut in the depiction of the urgency of young love. The French tale of a beautiful young woman destroyed by her conflicting needs for love and luxury... Puccini made the story his own and infused it with a new level of frank emotion and a flood of melody"--Metropolitan Opera website
