All the jewels in the world can't compare to the fire of a lover's embrace. That's the sad conclusion our teenage heroine, Manon, draws in the aria "In quelle trine morbide," as she sits surrounded by the finery of her Paris apartment. A deathly chill has pierced her heart in the days and weeks since she left the Chevalier des Grieux, a young student who loves her ardently, and no amount of gowns, make-up and pearls can replace his absence. Soprano Lianna Haroutounian stars in her role debut as the heroine of Puccini's "Manon Lescaut," now through November 26, 2019.
