About the Event
Experience opera like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Massenet at New York's remarkable Metropolitan Opera House.
Jules Massenet was a French composer of the late 19th century. He influenced the Romantic era with his works of operas such as Manon 1884 and Werther 1892. However, he also composed other genres such as ballets, oratorios, orchestral works and piano pieces. In 1863r he won the top musical prize, the Prix de Rome, and became one of the leading composer of opera in France. later on in life he became a professor at the Conservatoire of Paris, like many prominent French composers of the period.
An interpretation of the quintessentially French story of the delightful young lady who is unequipped for neglecting both love and extravagance, Massenet's Manon highlights one of the genuinely remarkable, powerful, and original female characters in drama. While the story is solidly set in class and sex issues of the past, the character of Manon herself is immortal, persuading, and commonplace. The show has been a triumph as far back as its debut.
