Teatro Regio: MANON LESCAUT21st April, 2017
Maria José Siri and Gregory Kunde star as the ill-fated lovers at the centre of Puccini’s passionate opera about a free-spirited country girl who becomes the toast of Paris and finds herself torn between true love and a life of luxury. This sumptuous opera – Puccini’s first major triumph – is a title closely linked to Teatro Regio, which hosted the world premiere in 1893. The rich score is characterised by youthful vitality and filled with glorious melodies. Captured live at Teatro Regio Torino Turin, 14 Mar 2017.
