Manon Lescaut

Approximate running time 3 hrs. 5 min.

On the heels of her triumph in Jenufa, Finnish phenomenon Karita Mattila adds another landmark role to her Met repertory, the free-spirited beauty Manon Lescaut. The story of the magnetic attraction between two young lovers is the perfect vehicle for the soprano’s exhilarating charisma, especially when matched by the ardent tenor of Marcello Giordani. Puccini never surpassed the erotic sweep of his own youthful hit.
