Description

Kenneth MacMillan’s full-blooded ballet of love, decadence and passion.

The young and naïve Manon is torn between two lives: privilege and opulence with the wealthy Monsieur GM, or innocent love with the penniless student Des Grieux. Wanting it all will be her downfall.

Aristocrats and beggars, courtesans and harlots fill the stage to take you from a gambling den in 18th Century Paris to a desolate Louisiana swamp, and share with you one of British ballet’s most dramatic stories.

Famous for its expressive choreography and acting demands, Manon features some of the most challenging roles in ballet. Let English National Ballet dancers and Philharmonic sweep you up to the haunting score by Jules Massenet.
