‘Manon’ Torn Between Love, Riches
Friday, October 25, 2019


She is destined for a convent. But it’s clear that she has no willpower to fend off the desire for worldly things. And there’s no chance whatsoever she’s going to the convent once she falls under the charm of  the chivalrous nobleman who catches sight of her while traveling home to see his father.

Sun Valley Opera and Metropolitan Theatres will present the story of “Manon” at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Big Wood 4 Cinemas in Hailey. Doors will open at 10:15 a.m. for coffee sponsored by Hailey Coffee Company.

The screening is the second in the 2019/20 MET HD series of live opera broadcasts form the New York Metropolitan Opera.

The story, set in Paris during the Belle Epoch, is a take on the quintessentially French tale of a beautiful young woman who is incapable of forsaking either love or luxury.

It stars soprano Lisette Oropesa as the tragic beauty who yearns for the finer things in life. Tenor Michael Fabiano is the besotted Chevalier des Grieux, whose desperate love for Manon proves their undoing.

Maurizio Benini conducts Jules Massenet’s sensual score, which is said to have quickly conquered the world’s stages when it was introduced in Paris in 1884


Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly” will take the stage at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9.
