The Royal Ballet: Manon
Kenneth MacMillan’s passionate ballet tells the story of Manon, who is torn between her desire for a life of splendour and riches and her devotion to her true love Des Grieux.
This adaptation of Abbé Prévost’s novel embodies Kenneth MacMillan at his best, his acute insight into human psychology and his mastery of narrative choreography finding full expression in the impassioned duets of the central couple.
Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan
Music: Jules Frédéric Massenet
