Opera Wednesday

I was listening to this opera yesterday morning on the SiriusXM Met Opera channel, which is probably why it's on my mind today. It's Puccini's beautiful Manon Lescaut, which proves that gorgeous music can overcome a stupid story that ends in the heretofore unknown desert wastelands of Louisiana.

This is the great Pl├ícido Domingo as Des Grieux, along with Renata Scotto in the title role of Manon, in a 1980 performance by the Metropolitan Opera.
