A Rare 'Manon' Sighting

The Metropolitan Opera's current production of Massenet's "Manon" has appeared only fleetingly, like some exotic bird with an odd migratory path. After its initial run in 1987, Jean-Pierre Ponnelle's staging was sent into storage for a decade, turning up again in 1997 and 2001. It returned to the Met on Tuesday evening, with Renée Fleming in the title role and Marcelo Álvarez as the Chevalier des Grieux.
