Summary
"Henze's first work of real note, the opera stands out for its use of strong jazz influence from a composer who had hitherto been associated with twelve tone technique. The piece is a reworking of the Manon Lescaut story, already adapted operatically by Auber, Massenet and Puccini, into a contemporary framework."--Wikipedia
