March 05, 2016 at Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston.

Kristine Opolais and Jonas Kaufmann star as the ill-fated lovers at the center of Manon Lescaut, Puccini’s passionate adaptation of the classic novel about a free-spirited country girl who becomes the toast of Paris. Sir Richard Eyre’s new production, set in the 1940s, reunites him with set designer Rob Howell, his collaborator on recent Met productions of Le Nozze di Figaro, Werther, and Carmen. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi conducts the new staging, which also stars Massimo Cavalletti as Manon’s cousin, Lescaut, and Brindley Sherratt as Geronte, her wealthy older lover.

Ticket holders are invited to a pre-opera talk by Leslie Gerber at 12:30 in the theater.

This series is sponsored by Premier Medical Group; Jane W. Nuhn Charitable Trust; and Dr. Edwin A. Ulrich Charitable Trust.

Also made possible through the support of the Benjamin R. Strong Opera Fund and the Stephen & Julia Dunwell Fund, both of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley.

The promotional sponsor is WMHT FM 89.1 Schenectady and WRHV FM 88.7 Poughkeepsie.
