Notes on performances

In the France of the Enlightenment, fortunes are made and lost at the speed of lightning. Manon, a captivating damsel of dangerously innocent charm, yields to the temptations of wealth and becomes corrupt and calculating. For her brother Lescaut she is a bargaining chip, for old Monsieur G.M. she is an object of desire; and for the student Des Grieux she is true and pure love. The character created by Prévost, which became popular thanks to melodrama, acquires a new and fascinating life through dance: in a wonderful example of his creativity, Kenneth MacMillan sets out the glamour and the tragedy of the leading character and creates splendid male roles, for a ballet that is exciting, real and gripping on the dramatic, psychological and choreographic planes. Our étoiles Svetlana Zakharova return on stage for three performances.
