English National Ballet - Manon
One of the UK's leading Ballet Companies. The young and na?ve Manon is torn between two lives: privilege and opulence with the wealthy Monsieur GM, or innocent love with the penniless student Des Grieux. Wanting it all will be her downfall. Aristocrats and beggars, courtesans and harlots fill the stage to take you from a gambling den in 18th-century Paris to a desolate Louisiana swamp, and share with you one of British ballet's most dramatic stories. Famous for its expressive choreography and acting demands, Manon features some of the most challenging roles in ballet. Let our Company sweep you up, to the haunting music of Jules Massenet performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. English National Ballet - Manon website
