The Turner-Fischer Center Presents: Manon

March 12 - 15, 2020
Shaver Theatre, Music & Dramatic Arts Building

First performed in 1884, Massenet’s Manon is often considered the supreme masterpiece of France’s dominant 19th-century opera composer. The story daringly explores a young woman’s sexuality, from flirtatious country girl to stylish mistress, as she seeks to be united with her one true love. Though ultimately tragic, Manon is filled with beautiful music that is a gift to singers and audiences alike.

Discounts and subscription packages available for students and LSU employees!
