Tales from the Opera
"Oh, I may be devout, but I am human all the same"- Moliere
Manon Lescaut is one of opera's most fallible heroines- a girl whose heart is torn between a life of love, and one of luxury. And who are we to judge? Maria Gulgehina and José Cura star in a vibrant re-telling of Puccini's tender opera.
