Manon (2 DVD) Royal Ballet
This new high definition film of Manon is one of the most popular ballets in the Royal BalletÍs repertory, having received over 200 performances since its premiere in 1974.
The DVD also includes an extensive (40 min) and fascinating documentary film, 'Dancing Manon', featuring interviews with Carlos Acosta, Tamara Rojo, Monica Mason (Director of the Royal Ballet).
Massenet’s most popular work, based on Abbe Prévost’s novel Manon Lescaut, premiered at Paris’s Opéra-Comique in 1884. Laurent Pelly, who created the Met’s new production of the opera, says: “Manon is an adventure that amuses, moves, and frightens us. The title character is lively, free, young, and feckless—and she manipulates all the men around her purely for her own pleasure. Anna Netrebko is remarkable in the part—she has sex appeal, a bewitching voice, and she is an extraordinary actress.”
