L'histoire de Manon

Production of the Teatro alla Scala

From 27 January to 11 February 2011

Running Time: 2 hours 40 minutes

Notes on the performancesOpen 
At once a profitable commodity for brother Lescaut, an object of desire for the ageing Monsieur G.M. and love in its truest and most pure form for the student Des Grieux, Prévost’s Manon, long adored by opera-lovers, is a seductive young woman who harbours a dangerously innocent charm and who will fall victim to the world’s depravity and her own naivety.

L’histoire de Manon is the third of MacMillan’s six full-length works and a fine example of his creative ability to fuse tradition and innovative zest. MacMillan’s ballet has always attracted the world’s leading danseurs and danseuses for the exciting roles it offers in terms of drama, psychology and choreography.

In this La Scala revival, Sylvie Guillem and Olesia Novikova share the role of Manon, Roberto Bolle and Massimo Murru take on the role of Des Grieux, and Thiago Soares that of Lescaut.

The etoile Svetlana Zakharova is in maternity leave and will not be able to take part in the productions in which she was due to appear in the 2010/2011 season. The Ballet Management has therefore extended the performances of some of the etoiles who are dancing in other ballets.
