Jules Massenet's most enduring opera, Manon, will be presented in a not-to-be-missed broadcast on Sunday afternoon on WRTI by the Academy of Vocal Arts. The opera, based on the 1731 novel L’histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by the Abbé Prévost, tells the story of a young girl with conflicting desires for love and luxury, corrupted by the idea of the glamorous life.
Christofer Macatsoris conducts the AVA Opera Orchestra. Sunday, May 4th at 3 pm. More about the cast members.
**Please note, our monthly Wanamaker Organ broadcast will be heard next Sunday, May 11 at 5 pm.
