Manon is arguably Kenneth MacMillan's masterpiece. Innocent girl or femme fatale, Manon is young, beautiful and naive, and she is in love. Caught between two men vying for her affection, Manon becomes entangled in a web of passion, love and vanity, unable to choose. Student Des Grieux offers a pure love, but the promises and opulence of Monsieur GM entice Manon to the life of a courtesan, with tragic consequences.

Performed by English National Ballet's 67 dancers and symphony orchestra, this production of Manon was premiered by the Royal Danish Ballet in 2003, and is given its UK premiere by English National Ballet in 2008.
