The Royal Ballet’s passionate revival of Macmillan’s MANON screening at Lanternhouse Cinema
Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan | Music: Jules Frédéric Massenet

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.
