Manon is a five act opera by Jules Massenet based on a musical script that was written by Henri Meilhac and Philippe Gille which was originally based on a French novel from 1731 named "L'Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux at de Manon Lescaut" by Abbe Prevost.

When Massenet took the musical in his hands he added a sequel to it.
