EPISODE DESCRIPTION

The "material girl" at the heart of Abbé Prévost's novella, Manon Lescaut, is one of literature's most charming yet enigmatic heroines. She has inspired no less than 4 operas, 2 ballets, films and more - including Giacomo Puccini's first major success.

In Tune with the Opera Company of Philadelphia
, hosted by Michael Bolton and Maren Montalbano, takes a look at Puccini's lush romantic score in preparation for OCP's April 2012 production of the opera.

These performances at the Academy of Music mark the first professional Philadelphia performances of the opera in 25 years and stars 2011 Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition Winner Michelle Johnson, Thiago Arancam, Troy Cook and Daniel Mobbs.

Musical excerpts on the podcast are provided by Allegro Music Group on the Opera d'Oro label, catalogue number 1428.  This complete recording can be purchased online at http://www.allegro-music.com/online_catalog.asp?sku_tag=OPD31428.
