Manon Lescaut is a lyrical drama by G. Puccini where the young knight Des Grieux falls in love at first sight with Manon, who has just got off the carriage with her brother Lescaut. But the old and influential Geronte wants her too. Don Pasquale, by Donizetti narrates the plot between the young and smiling Norina and her lover Ernesto to get his uncle, Don Pasquale, to abandon their marriage expectations. Verdi's A Masquerade Ball takes place after the 1792 assassination of King Gustaf III of Sweden who was shot, as a result of a political conspiracy, while attending a masquerade ball. Ernani, also by Verdi, recounts how there is an old enmity between the Habsburgs and the Dukes of Aragon. A duke has been assassinated, but his son was able to escape: since then he has traveled the country under the name of Ernani and stirred up sentiments against King Charles.

The stories of Hoffman, of Offenbach, speak of the eternal flow of life. It is based on Les contes fantastiques d'Hoffmann, a play by Jules Barbier and M. Carré.
