The Royal Ballet | Choreography Kenneth MacMillan, Music by Jules Massenet | Ballet in three acts | Broadcast LIVE | £17 Full (£15 Concession)
This powerful telling of Manon and Des Grieux’s tragic love is a masterpiece of modern ballet.
Kenneth MacMillan’s source for Manon was the 18th-century French novel already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. The ballet quickly became a staple of The Royal Ballet’s repertory, and a touchstone of adult, dramatic dance.
Manon’s brother Lescaut is offering her to the highest bidder when she meets Des Grieux and falls in love. They elope to Paris, but when Monsieur G.M. offers Manon a life of luxury as his mistress she can’t resist…
Est. running time: 2h 35min (inc. two intervals)
