An opulent tale of love vs money


Manon is a rare thing – at once a ravishing feast for the senses, and the utterly compelling story of a young girl who forsakes true love for wealth.

A naive girl on her way to a convent, Manon dreams of the city. Des Grieux, a young student, is instantly smitten by her, and they run away together. But once in Paris, Manon quickly succumbs to the lure of luxury, and her course is set for both tragedy and redemption.

Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s sweeping vision of decadent 18th century Paris, richly costumed and lusciously orchestrated, is brought to life by the breathtaking artistry of The Australian Ballet's renowned company of dancers.
Get ready to be seduced.

Jules Massenet
arranged and orchestrated by Martin Yate


Sunday Herald Sun

“One of the great story ballets”
