Jules Massenet Autograph and Musical Quotation from Manon

This vintage autographed photo of Jules Massenet with a musical quotation from his opera Manon is beautifully matted and framed with a Met program of this opera from March 11, 1931. The ornate gold frame measures 17.5” w x 14” h.

 

Massenet’s most popular work, based on Abbe Prévost’s novel Manon Lescaut, premiered at Paris’s Opéra-Comique in 1884. Laurent Pelly, who created the Met’s new production of the opera, says: “Manon is an adventure that amuses, moves, and frightens us. The title character is lively, free, young, and feckless—and she manipulates all the men around her purely for her own pleasure. Anna Netrebko is remarkable in the part—she has sex appeal, a bewitching voice, and she is an extraordinary actress.”
