MANON LESCAUT

a Gaulitana Festival production

COLIN ATTARD Musical Director

Giacomo Puccini Manon Lescaut

Jules Massenet had produced his own successful opera, Manon, based on a controversial 18th century novel by Abbé Prévost featuring a young impoverished noble and his courtesan lover in France and in Louisiana only a few years before Puccini set out to do the same, but the Italian composer convinced his publisher to go ahead with the project, stating that “a woman like Manon can have more than one lover.”

It proved to be the composer’s first great operatic success, and will be the highlight of the 13th edition of Gaulitana:

A Festival of Music, with soprano Miriam Gauci in the lead role.
