"Manon Lescaut" follows the all-consuming love affair between Manon Lescaut and her young student, Des Grieux. But Manon longs for a life of luxury and riches, and when a nobleman offers to make her his mistress she finds it hard to resist.

Her inability to choose between love and comfort proves her downfall, in a story that tumbles from passion and devotion to violence... and finally to tragedy.
