Introduction and prices

Kenneth MacMillan’s three-act ballet Manon is not just one of
the great showpieces of The Royal Ballet, for whom it was created,
but also now of the classical ballet repertory worldwide. The
famous story follows the young girl Manon, torn between her
impetuous love for the student Des Grieux and her desire for wealth
and comfort as a kept woman of a rich man.

These two central roles are showcases for the skill and dramatic
power of any dancers, and this time round there will be the extra
thrill of catching several debuts from up-and-coming young stars of
The Royal Ballet. The stage picture brings to life the 18th
century – from the bustling courtyard of an inn where the
couple first meet to the louche atmosphere of a Parisian house of
‘entertainment’ and its courtesans. Expressive music drawn from
Massenet has been skilfully woven into a ballet score that
alternates the sensuous and the dramatic to match the adult themes
of a world-class ballet.
