Massenet
Manon

Who can resist the charms of Manon or remain unmoved by her fate? Ruth Ann Swenson takes on Massenet’s title heroine, the equally beautiful and high-spirited young girl who turns her back on life in a convent when she meets the handsome des Grieux (Giuseppe Sabbatini)—only to be seduced by the promise of a luxurious existence as the mistress of the rich old Brétigny (Kim Josephson). When she learns that des Grieux, desperate she has left him, is about to take holy orders, she changes her mind—but it is too late, and their love story ends in tragedy.
