Manon Lescaut (Opera Journeys Mini Guide Series)
Manon Lescaut is one of Puccini's less successful scores, although many people prefer his slight astringency to Amassment's sweeter treatment of the same subject. It has some lovely moments, though, particularly for the tenor. This orchestral version has all the parts, but no English translation; you'll need your own, or a good Italian dictionary.
