Puccini in Peebles

Part of the Live Opera season at the Eastgate Theatre, Peebles, The Royal Opera presents Manon Lescaut, on Tuesday (June 24), at 6.45pm.

This early Puccini masterpiece makes a welcome return in a new production by Jonathan Kent under the baton of music director Antonio Pappano. The consummate Puccini soprano Kristine Opolais sings the title role of the bold but impressionable heroine. Jonas Kaufmann is her lover Des Grieux and Christopher Maltman is her cynical brother Lescaut. This is a new production and

Kent’s vision of a young girl who falls into temptation in the big city but ends up in the arms of her true love, is much anticipated.

Tickets are priced £17, or £10 for schoolchildren.
