The Academy Center of the Arts has just announced the Metropolitan Opera HD Broadcast 19-20 season, featuring Massenet’s Manon on Sunday, 10/27 at 12:55pm in the Historic Academy of Music Theatre.
Exhilarating soprano 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. Tenor Michael Fabiano is the besotted Chevalier des Grieux, whose desperate love for Manon proves their undoing. Maurizio Benini conducts Massenet’s sensual score.
A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera; Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London; Teatro alla Scala, Milan; and Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse.
Production a gift of The Sybil B. Harrington Endowment Fund .
The Academy Center of the Arts and Foster Fuels are proud to partner with Opera on the James to offer a pre-screening talk, beginning one hour prior to the screening at 11:55am.
Join the Academy, Foster Fuels, and Opera on the James as Peter speaks about Manon and relevant topics related to the Broadcasted Opera.
