Audiences arriving at the Royal Ballet in 2011 will once again get an opportunity to witness the Kenneth MacMillan masterpiece that is “Manon”, portraying the story of passion as the stunning Manon Lescaut attempts to choose between two loves. It arrives at the Royal Opera House from April and features a host of talented performers in the title role and Martin Yates as conductor. So those with ballet tickets will get the opportunity to witness something truly special as the piece, which has been held in high regards around the country since it premiered in the 1970s, makes its way to the Royal Ballet once again.

Kenneth MacMillan’s work is based on the 1731 novel “L’histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Man Lescaut” by Antoine François Prévost. With music from Jules Massanet, whose opera “Werther” also appeared at the ROH this season, “Manon” tells of the beautiful young girl of the title, who must decide between the student Des Grieux who guarantees her true love, or the wealthy man that can provide her with luxury. Throughout the ballet we witness the up and downs of the relationship between Des Grieux and Manon, ultimately leading to a tragic conclusion.

Manon runs at the Royal Opera House from Thursday 21st April 2011 to Saturday 4th June 2011.
