Vom Verlag:

English National Opera Guides are ideal companions to the opera. They provide stimulating introductory articles together with the complete text of each opera in English and the original. The story of Manon Lescaut has become part of the European imagination: she is the funloving woman who is irresistible to men. Of Massenet's many operas, she inspired the most popular one, and this libretto shows his minute attention to detail in bringing the character and the period to life. This guide opens with a general survey of Massenet's career by the musicologist Gérard Condé, and includes two essays about this particular opera. Professor Hugh Macdonald explores the interplay of speech and song in Manon and Massenet's genius for comedy. Professor Vivienne Mylne traces the sources and context of Prévost's novel.

Über den Autor:

Ranked as one of the greatest melodists of his era, Jules Émile Frédéric Massenet (1842 - 1912) was a French composer whose operas fell out of fashion after his death. However since the mid-1970s interest has been rekindled.
