Giacomo Puccini

Manon Lescaut

Introduction at 6.50 pm

Romantic love or a life of luxury – Manon must make a decision. At the urging of her brother Lescaut, she chooses the rich Geronte di Ravoir. Decked out in expensive jewellery and celebrating her riches, however, Manon experiences first doubts. To her true love, Des Grieux, things are clear from the very beginning: he will do anything for his Manon, to the point of absolute self-annihilation.
Philipp Himmelmann directs Hamburg’s Manon Lescaut in retrospect: the student Des Grieux painfully recalls his suffering and the woman who meant the world to him. This perspective offers a whole new insight into the familiar operatic tale.
