Experience Puccini’s third opera and his first big success, the Manon Lescaut, in Ferenc Erkel Opera Theatre Budapest.
Manon Lescaut is an opera in four acts by Giacomo Puccini, composed between 1890 and 1893. The story is based on a novel from 1731.
In a bittersweet romantic story, Manon meets the young student, Des Grieux, and they fall in love. They elope – but when the elderly Geronte offers Manon a life of wealth and luxury, her head is turned.
