Performance on Screen: The best operas, ballets and plays peformed by internationally renowned companies.
Kenneth MacMillan’s acclaimed tragic ballet Manon makes a triumphant return to our Performance on Screen series. In this heartbreaking drama, 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 cannot resist. Featuring astonishing choreography, and striking designs with its striking depiction of a world of lavish splendour, Manon is one of The Royal Ballet’s most celebrated productions.
Includes one 15-minute intermission.
