In Detail

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, visceral and urgent in their desire.

The heroine’s struggle to escape poverty make ‘Manon’ one of the most dramatic and devastating of ballets, emphasized by Nicholas Georgiadis’ evocative designs that reflect the juxtaposition between Manon’s impoverished origins and the lavish world she longs to inhabit.

Choreography - Kenneth Macmillan; Music - Jules Massenet; Orchestration -Martin Yates; Designer - Nicholas Georgiadis; Lighting designer - Jacopo Pantani; Conductor - Koen Kessels; Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.
