Opera Holland Park will be putting on a production of Manon Lescaut by Giacomo Puccini.

The opera 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.

Note: The Holland Park Theatre is basically just a big white canopy in the middle of Holland Park, using Holland House as its backdrop. Be aware that some of the sides are open to the air (with the canopy acting as a roof), so you might want to wrap-up warm. There are some picnic areas and refreshment areas dotted around the site which you can use during the interval and before it starts.
