The English National Ballet’s production of Kenneth MacMillan’s ballet returns to London.
Playing at the London Coliseum from the 16th to the 20th January, the ENB’s production of Kenneth MacMillan’s classic ballet features music by Jules Massenet arranged by Martin Yates.
In a world where extravagant riches and abject poverty exist side by side, Manon is caught in-between. She falls in love with a penniless student, but is lured into becoming the mistress of a rich gentleman. From giddiness to despair, triumph to regret, this Manon is ‘searingly powerful’ (The Guardian).
The cast for this production is set to include Alina Cojocaru (January 16th, January 20th matinee), Begoña Cao (January 17th), Erina Takahashi (January 18th), Joseph Caley (January 16th, January 20th matinee), Aitor Arrieta (January 17th), Jeffrey Cirio (January 18th), Jurgita Dronina (January 17th matinee, January 19th), Emma Hawes (January 18th matinee), Alison McWhinney (January 19 matinee), Isaac Hernández (January 17th matinee, January 19th), Rupert Pennefather (January 18th matinee) and Francesco Gabriele Frola (January 19th matinee).
Jules Massenet’s music will be performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic. The production also features designs and costumes by Mia Stensgaard and lighting by Mikki Kunttu.
Manon will be performed at the London Coliseum from the 16th to the 20th January.
