Run Time: TBC

This early Puccini masterpiece makes a welcome return to Covent Garden after an absence of over 20 years, in a new production by Jonathan Kent under the baton of Music Director Antonio Pappano.

The exciting Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais sings the title role. A consummate Puccini soprano, Opolais caused a sensation as Madama Butterfly in 2011, and with Manon Lescaut, the bold but impressionable heroine, we will see a very different side of her character.

She is matched in star power by Jonas Kaufmann as her lover Des Grieux, and Christopher Maltman as her cynical brother Lescaut.

This is a much-anticipated new production, and Kent’s vision of a young girl who faces temptation in the big city will surely resonate with today’s audience.

The show time given is the curtain-up time; doors open 15 minutes earlier.
