Kenneth MacMillan's Manon
Based on the novel ‘
Manon Lescaut’ by Abbé Prévost, Manon tells the story of a fickle young woman with a taste for luxury and her hapless lover who goes to
extreme lengths to
please her. This bewitching ballet about the ultimate femme fatale is choreographed by Kenneth MacMillan and features a sequence of challenging lifts and movements, as is typical of MacMillan’s work. Along with the stirring composition of Jules Massenet, the set and costume design of Peter Farmer create an exquisite world of rags and riches, where the intense desires of powerful people lead them to their own demise.
