This adaptation of Abbé Prévost’s novel embodies Kenneth MacMillan at his best, his acute
insight into human psychology and his mastery of narrative choreography finding full
expression in the impassioned duets of the central couple, visceral and urgent in their desire.
The heroine’s struggle to escape poverty make Manon one of the most dramatic and
devastating of ballets, emphasized by Nicholas Georgiadis’ evocative designs that reflect the
juxtaposition between Manon’s impoverished origins and the lavish world she longs to
inhabit. The 2023/24 Season celebrates the centenary of Nicholas Georgiadis.
