Manon Lascaut 

The New Orleans Opera Association opens its season with Puccini's first major success, Manon Lascaut, the story of a young woman who chooses between two lovers. Manon (Melody Moore) abandons plans to enter a convent when she meets Chevalier Des Grieux (Roy C. Smith, pictured), a young student, but then is charmed by the wealth and power of Geronte de Revoir, a government official. When she leaves him to return to her true love, Des Grieux, she keeps gifts from Geronte, who accuses her of stealing them and has her arrested. Then, horror of horrors, she is deported to New Orleans. Robert Lyall directs the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. Tickets $30-$125. — Will Coviello

8 p.m. Fri., Oct. 17; 2:30 p.m. Sun., Oct. 19
