Manon Lescaut - G. Puccini
After the great success of Jules Massenet’s opera of the same name, Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) also set the well-known material of Abbé Prévost to music in 1892: compared to the French-language version, he wanted to write the opera in the Italian manner, full of passion and with great despair. That he succeeded in this was attested to by an enthusiastic audience that attended the premiere at the Teatro Regio in Turin. Even today, critics attest Puccini’s masterpiece an enormous power of suggestion. With "Manon Lescaut" Puccini had also cemented his international reputation as a recognized composer. For the dramatic death scene in the finale, he created a somber and harrowing emotional world that he was never to achieve again on such a high scale. In addition, "Manon Lescaut" is characterized by an abundance of new melodies and motifs that have eternal value in their ingenuity and musical beauty. The six extremely varied solo pieces for Des Grieux alone are among the most demanding tenor parts Puccini ever wrote. The characteristically immature figure of Manon contrasts with his later title heroines in that she lacks inner stability and is guided not only by love but also by base motives such as greed, avarice and ostentation.

Elena Stikhina
Soprano Elena Stikhina (*1986) is one of the outstanding young artists of our time and has already caused an international sensation in her field: after winning the prestigious Operalia Singing Competition in 2016 – an award that in the past has already been the career springboard for many glorious artists of our times – performances at the Opéra de Paris, the Deutsche Oper Berlin as well as the Staatsoper Unter den Linden and the Dresden Semperoper soon followed. In the 2018/2019 season, Stikhina made her successful debuts in the U.S., both at New York’s Metropolitan Opera, where she gave the title role in Giacomo Puccini’s ´Suor Angelica`, and as ´Tosca` at Boston Lyric Opera. In the summer of 2019, the Russian-born singer gave her much acclaimed premiere at the Salzburg Festival with the role of Medee – standing in for Sonya Yoncheva. With this, at the latest, Stikhina is about to establish herself from an outstanding young artist to one of the future big stars in the musical sky.
