Manon

Manon

Tuesday, 18 July 2017 - 7:15pm

The story of Manon Lescaut has been used in two superb operas, Massenet's Manon, Puccini's Manon Lescaut, also in Kenneth MacMillan's wonderful ballet Manon.

Over the June and July meetings we will watch various scenes from these works, looking at how each depicts Manon’s story, as well as the character of Manon herself. The meetings form a pair; however, even if you can attend one but not the other, you will surely find the meeting you can attend enjoyable and interesting.

To whet your appetite, the singers will be Plácido Domingo, Kiri Te Kanawa, Thomas Allen, Renée Fleming, Marcello Alvarez, and the dancers Tamara Rojo and Carlos Acosta.

The evenings will be a treat whether your preference is opera or ballet, don’t miss!

Held in the Brunt Room at the Settlement, Nevells Road, Letchworth, SG6 4UB. £3 LALG members, £4 non-members.
