Set in the lavish world of 18th-century France, virtue and corruption collide in Des Moines Metro Opera Presents Manon. This stunning re-working of a rarely performed masterpiece tells the story of beautiful and impulsive Manon’s descent from innocence to desperation.

“She [Manon] is just like the Paris that created her,” said Stage Director Kristine McIntyre, “glittering, full of life and on the brink of destruction.” 

This preview feature includes behind-the-scenes interviews with DMMO General and Artistic Director Michael Egel, Conductor David Neely, Stage Director Kristine McIntyre, and principal cast members.
