Manon Lescaut

Donald Runnicles conducts Deutsche Oper Berlin

The powerhouse Scottish conductor brings his company, with an exceptional cast of international soloists, for this vivid concert performance. 

Love, conflict, greed and desire. Manon Lescaut was Puccini’s breakthrough hit opera, and its exquisitely tender melodies and churning, surging emotions remain potent today.

Much loved by International Festival audiences, powerhouse Scottish conductor Donald Runnicles has been Music Director of Deutsche Oper Berlin since 2009. He brings his company, with an exceptional cast of international soloists, for this vivid concert performance of Puccini’s searching survey of a woman’s soul.

Superlative star soprano Sondra Radvanovsky takes the title role.


This concert will start promptly and latecomers will not be admitted until the interval.
