About

In few words:

In 1731, when the abbé Prévost wrote l’Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut – which would serve as inspiration for Massenet’s Manon – he was presenting us with a portrait of an era: that of the French Regency, which saw the dying days of an old society and the apparent birth of a new one in which the promise of freedom seemed to abound. Manon would steer a course between these two worlds, escaping the convent to embrace the paths of desire and transgression and throw herself headlong into a passionate, yet self-destructive love affair with Des Grieux. A parenthesis opens only to close painfully in the night. Director Vincent Huguet breaks free from historical trappings to place the work in the splendour and heady days of the Roaring Twenties.
