Kenneth MacMillan's powerful telling of Manon and Des Grieux's tragic love is a masterpiece of modern ballet.  Music by Massenet.

 

Manon's brother Lescaut is offering her to the highest bidder when she meets Des Grieux and falls in love.  They elope to Paris, but when Monsieur G.M. offers Manon a life of luxury as his mistress she can't resist.  With the Lescauts' encouragement Des Grieux cheats at cards in an attempt to win Monsieur G.M.'s fortune.  They are caught.  Manon is arrested as a prostitute and deported to New Orleans, followed by Des Grieux.  On the run, Manon dies from exhaustion.

With Sarah Lamb, Vadim Muntagirov, Ryoichi Hirano, Itziar Mendizabal, Gary Avis and Vasko Vassilev.
