About the Event

Kenneth MacMillan constructs his three‐act ballet, L'Histoire de Manon, on a mosaic of extracts from Massenet, finding in the music the drama and romanticism necessary for this grand fresco in dance.

Inspired by L'Abbé Prévost’s legendary heroes, the choreographer reconstructs the tragic story of the sensual yet naïve creature who is more victim than architect of her own fate. In Regency Paris, bourgeois society gorges itself on luxury and easy pleasures.
