This weekend will be our last chance to see Carol Vaness and Victoria Litherland as Manon. Tickets are still available for Wednesday, Friday and Saturday performances.
"Ah, young love, foolish choices, and deep regrets! In Puccini's poignant Manon Lescaut, the title character is a beautiful young woman torn by desire. First wooed by the handsome but poor Des Grieux, Manon narrowly avoids a convent life and follows her love to Paris. Later, she is lured away by the wealthy Geronte, who offers her a luxurious, but loveless, life. When Des Grieux comes to call, her passion for him reawakens and the lovers plot to run away together. The tumultuous events that befall them are the stuff of romantic tragedy at its best." Seattle Opera
This will be my first Seattle Opera Manon and I can't wait!
