Kenneth MacMillan’s full-blooded ballet of love, decadence and passion.
Get swept up in the romantic tragedy of Manon, a breath-taking journey of love, decadence and passion.
In a world where extravagant riches and abject poverty exist side by side, Manon is caught in-between. She falls in love with a penniless student, but is lured into becoming the mistress of a rich gentleman. From giddiness to despair, triumph to regret, this Manon is ‘searingly powerful’ (The Guardian).
‘Handsomely staged, meticulously rehearsed and vividly danced’ (The Spectator), English National Ballet’s production of Kenneth MacMillan’s ballet features compelling characters, gasp-inducing love duets and larger than life scenes, all set to a haunting score by Jules Massenet, played live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
Join us in the grand space of the London Coliseum for an experience to treasure.
