Plácido Domingo is Des Grieux, the handsome, headstrong young aristocrat who falls head over heels for the enticing, impetuous Manon Lescaut (Renata Scotto). Manon returns his love, but her obsession with luxury ruins them both.

During the turmoil he denounces his mother, Fidès (Marilyn Horne at her spectacular best), and his fiancé, Berthe (a passionate Renata Scotto), turns on him.
