Review: Manon Lescaut

From Upbeat, 1:40 pm on 17 July 2017

Peter Hoar reviews Manon Lescaut, the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s Opera in Concert led by Music Director Giordano Bellincampi. This was Puccini’s break through opera with all the ingredients of a smash hit. Upbeat reviewer Peter Hoar describes how the stage was used to suggest various spaces and settings and says the singing and playing were of such a high calibre it was just as moving and powerful an experience as if it had been staged.
