“Foremost, Ailyn Pérez as the eponymous Manon sang the high notes with ease, then slipped gracefully into the lower register. Pérez, whose hilarious performance earlier this season as the scheming understudy in Great Scott highlighted her lighter side, here showed her versatility as a young woman growing from naïveté to worldliness and then despair. She inhabited each iteration of her character, running the gamut from ingenue to temptress to conniving sphinx and in spite of her flaws, you can’t help but love her. Pérez’s performance of the aria “Adieu, notre petite table” was heart-wrenching.”
