Among the composer's oeuvre, Manon Lescaut is the opera that cemented Puccini's stellar reputation among his fellow composers. It was believed to be the artist's most successful work during his lifetime. Manon Lescaut owes its success mainly to the different portrayal of its main heroine, who is no longer a loose creature but rather a sensitive woman in love who ends tragically.
