Massenet
Manon

The great Licia Albanese sings the bewitching title heroine in this scintillating performance of Massenet’s opera, an adaptation of Abbé Prévost’s famous novel, opposite a passionate Giuseppe Di Stefano as Des Grieux. Martial Singher and Jerome Hines round out the cast of this tale of an all-consuming love affair that ends in tragedy and death. Fausto Cleva leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus.
