Wed 17 - Sat 20 October
Manchester Opera House

English National Ballet brings Kenneth MacMillan’s masterpiece to Manchester: a full-blooded ballet of love, luxury and passion.

As intense as Romeo & Juliet, this classic follows the story of Manon, a young woman torn between two lives: privilege and opulence with a wealthy gentleman, or innocent love with the penniless student she has fallen for. Wanting it all will be her downfall.

Aristocrats, courtesans and beggars fill the stage to take you from a gambling den in 18th century Paris to a desolate Louisiana swamp, and tell this dramatic story. A tragic romance to compete with any period drama, Manon is also full of magnificent choreography, and a sweeping score performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic.

From the orchestra striking up its first notes, to the final bows and cheers, watching English National Ballet in the beautiful space of the Manchester Opera House is an experience to treasure.
