BUEI & Gilbert & Sullivan present: ‘The Met: Live in HD’ Operas in Bermuda – Manon Lescaut

April 16, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Soprano Kristine Opolais and tenor Roberto Alagna join forces in Puccini’s obsessive love story.  Opolais sings the title role of the country girl who transforms herself into a Parisian temptress, while Alagna is the dashing student who desperately woos her.  Director Richard Eyre places the action in occupied France in a film noir setting.  “Desperate passion” is the phrase Puccini himself used to describe the opera that confirmed his position as the pre-eminent Italian opera composer of his day.  Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the stirring score.  In Italian with English subtitles.

Complimentary canapes at interval and cash bar available.

TICKETS: $35 adults / $30 students. Tickets can be purchased at BUEI’s Oceans gift shop, by calling 294-0204 or  online.
