Royal Opera House: Manon
Manon is beautiful and impulsive, and loves romance almost as much as she loves diamonds. She meets and falls in love with the handsome young student Des Grieux and they elope to Paris. But when the wealthy Monsieur G.M. asks Manon to be his mistress she is torn between a life with Des Grieux and one of luxury.
One of the most dramatic and devastating of all ballets, Kenneth MacMillan's Manon is based on an eighteenth-century novel that was banned when it first came out in 1731, before becoming hugely popular on the back of pirated copies. Manon’s story has since inspired numerous adaptations, including operas by Massenet and Puccini and a film by Henri-Georges Clouzot.FilmChild-friendlyBallet
