PDF English National Opera Guides are ideal companions to the opera. They provide stimulating introductory articles together with the complete text of each opera in English and the original. The story of Manon Lescaut has become part of the European imagination: she is the funloving woman who is irresistible to men. Of Massenet s many operas, she inspired the most popular one, and this libretto shows his minute attention to detail in bringing the character and the period to life. This guide opens with a general survey of Massenet s career by the musicologist Gerard Conde, and includes two essays about this particular opera. Professor Hugh Macdonald explores the interplay of speech and song in Manon and Massenet s genius for comedy. Professor Vivienne Mylne traces the sources and context of Prevost s novel."
