A young girl desires love but is corrupted by wealth, in Kenneth MacMillan’s erotically charged ballet and modern masterpiece Manon.
First performed in 1974 and celebrating its 40th anniversary, Manon is a staple of the Royal Ballet’s repertory.
The tragic story of Manon Lescaut and Des Grieux is based on the novel by French writer Abbé Prévost. The Royal Ballet’s Manon screens at Palace Byron Bay Cinema on Wednesday at 11 am. Tickets $15–$24 available at Palace box office or online at www.palacecinemas.com.au.
