The Collins Center for the Arts Presents “George Bernard’s Manon Lescaut” from the Met

opera   A woman who’s seeded passion for love, life, and luxury in the setting of France is bursting at the seams as her deception destroyed by her inner conflicts with attaining love and the opposing wealth and power tipping the scales of her judgement becomes a raging obsession. Leaving the simple life she once held as a country girl, her escalation into power overshadows her in a tyrannous journey to taking on the role of a Parisian temptress. The climb to her goal inflicts a deep rooted passion engaged by an onslaught between true happiness and the quest for position. George Bernard’s highly acclaimed masterpiece has been readily compared to the works of Verdi and still holds its valor in this complex and chivalrous tale of adoration and the devil’s gain.
