Dying in the deserts of Louisiana, the young exile Manon Lescaut curses the beauty that led to her expulsion from France. Everything seems to conspire against her love with the Chevalier des Grieux: first her brother, then jealousy and revenge, and now the harsh environment of the New World which is slowly sapping her life away. In a tour de force, soprano Lianna Haroutounian performs the aria "Sola, perduta, abbandonata," the epic climax of Puccini's masterwork "Manon Lescaut."
