    Conductor: Maurizio Benini
    Production: Laurent Pelly
    Set Designer: Chantal Thomas
    Costume Designer: Laurent Pelly
    Lighting Designer: Joël Adam

    de Morfontaine), Artur Ruciński (Lescaut), Brett Polegato (de Brétigny), Kwangchul Youn
    (Comte des Grieux)

    Manon’s story—from innocent country girl to celebrated courtesan to destitute prisoner—is
    one of the great tragic tales in literature and music. Lisette Oropesa stars as the irresistible
    title character, the tragic beauty who yearns for the finer things in life, in Laurent Pelly’s
    revealing production. Michael Fabiano is the besotted Chevalier des Grieux, whose desperate
    love for Manon proves their undoing. Maurizio Benini conducts Massenet’s sensual score.
