This was the opera that first brought Puccini fame--and in this passionate performance, starring Raina Kabaivanska in the title role opposite Richard Tucker as des Grieux, it's easy to see why. The two characters' tumultuous relationship sends off musical sparks, as both of their lives are invariably altered by the experience. After a chance meeting, Manon and des Grieux's idyllic life in poverty is short-lived as she begins to crave the luxury offered by other suitors. In the end, she dies a destitute woman, with the faithful des Grieux by her side--even though his unwavering love for her has ruined his life as well

22 editions published between 1959 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Preparing for their wedding, the valet Figaro learns from the maid Susanna that their philandering employer, Count Almaviva, has designs on her. In her boudoir, the Countess laments her husband's waning love but plots to chasten him, encouraged by Figaro and Susanna. Susanna leads the Count on with promises of a rendezvous in the garden. Alone later that day, Susanna rhapsodizes on her love for Figaro, but he, overhearing, thinks she means the Count. Almaviva chases Cherubino away and sends his wife, who he thinks is Susanna, to an arbor, to which he follows. By now Figaro understands the joke and, joining the fun, makes exaggerated love to Susanna in her Countess disguise. The Count returns, seeing, or so he thinks, Figaro with his wife. Outraged, he calls everyone to witness his judgment, but now the real Countess appears and reveals the ruse. Grasping the truth at last, the Count begs her pardon
