SCREENING: Royal Ballet Manon | Tuesday 8 May

The Royal Ballet perform Manon, a ballet in three acts


A ballet in three acts, Kenneth McMillan’s powerful telling of Manon and Des Grieux’s tragic love is a masterpiece of modern ballet set to music by Massenet.

Kenneth McMillan’s source for Manon was the 18th century French novel already adapted for opera by Messenet and Puccini. McMillan found new sympathy with the capricious Manon and her struggle to escape poverty. With designs by his regular collaborator Nicholas Georgiadis depict a world of lavish splendour polluted by miserable destitution.
