Leeds Youth Opera presents Manon

Feature: Manon

Manon is one of Jules Massenet’s most popular and enduring operas with music that is said to capture the charm and vitality of the Parisian ‘Beautiful Era’.

Manon starts her journey on the way to a convent but is soon seduced by the sights, sounds and characters she meets along the way, leading her down a very different path.

Leeds Youth Opera set this version of Manon against the romantic and poetic backdrop of 1930’s Paris, allowing the vibrant characters, stunning chorus numbers and intimate arias an exciting artistic freedom which brings this delightful opera to life on The Carriageworks stage.

A must see for all Opera and Musical Theatre fans alike!
