She gave up true love for luxury. Now she wants it back.
Relive the unmatched feeling of dawning love in the opera that skyrocketed Puccini to success. Don't miss Nicola Luisotti's return to conduct fan favorites Lianna Haroutounian and Brian Jagde in this luxurious production.
Armenian soprano Lianna Haroutounian, an ace Verdi and Puccini interpreter who played Cio-Cio San in Madama Butterfly here in 2016 and drew praise last year as Nedda in Pagliacci, makes her role debut at SF Opera as Manon Lescaut, the lovely title character of Puccini’s hit 1893 romantic tragedy. Tenor Brian Jagde stars as the smitten Chevalier des Grieux.
