The Royal Ballet: Manon On Screen
Please note, this event has expired.
The Royal Ballet, direct from London on the Rafael screen!
Set to the music by Jules Massenet, this ballet version choreographed by Kenneth McMillan tells the tale of the capricious Manon and her struggle to escape poverty.
McMillan’s source was the 18th century French novel already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini.
Since its premiere in the 1970s, McMillan’s ballet quickly became a staple of The Royal Ballet’s repertory and a touchstone of adult, dramatic dance.
Anticipated running time is 155 minutes, including intermissions.
