English Touring Opera - Manon Lescaut

English Touring Opera bring a season full of the temptations of the big city to Cheltenham this spring with new productions of two landmark operas.

Manon Lescaut was Puccini’s first great success, portraying the flaring of love in a dramatic and musical triumph.

Manon Lescaut is a devastating depiction of a woman wrestling with her desire for love on her own terms, and the rigid double standards imposed on her by society. The opera was a breakthrough hit for its composer, Giacomo Puccini, packed with memorable music and heartbreaking drama.

Jude Christian, fresh from a critically acclaimed Titus Andronicus at London's Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, brings incisive direction and a sharp, poetic translation to her radical new production, while ETO Music Director Gerry Cornelius conducts. 

Join the English Touring Opera creative team for a free pre-show talk at 6pm. Places are limited to book your space now.
