It has never been matter of wonder to me that human resolutions are liable to change; one passion gives them birth, another may destroy them

Why See San Francisco Opera - Manon Lescaut?

Classical & Opera

Puccini's Early Masterpiece

The young beauty Manon is spirited away on her journey to a convent when she and her companion, her brother Lescaut, break up the trip with a stop at a country inn. Whilst Lescaut complains of his duty, Manon soon becomes the center of the attentions of two men. One the young handsome student Geronte, with nothing but love to share - and another, the far more dangerous Des Grieux, a wealthy older man who is used to getting what he wants. The second of two operas based on Abbe Prevost's controversial novel, the boiling passions of Puccini's adaptation became an early sign of his bubbling genius.

A ravishing work, allow yourself to be swept up in a tale of soaring emotion, romance and tragedy that explores the nature of temptation, and just what we might be willing to sacrifice for luxury.

Filled with rap, pop, R&B and jazz, it's marvellously dense, visually and aurally, and dramatic. And though they flow seamlessly, the scenes-slash-songs, both personal and political are works of art unto themselves.
