On March 25, Medici.tv will broadcast the Opéra national de Paris’ new production of Massenet’s Manon, beginning at 19:30. Dan Ettinger takes the podium of the Paris Opera Orchestra, leading two sensational young superstars: Benjamin Bernheim (des Grieux) and Pretty Yende (Manon).

“Manon is like any person who, strolling down the street one day, glances up at a second-story window and catches a glimpse of a different life,” explains Vincent Huguet about his new staging of Massenet’s Manon, “a life that she suddenly desires ardently … and will do anything to have.” In his update of Prévost’s famous novel, Huguet demonstrates, with empathy and acuity, that Manon’s tale could really be anyone’s.
