The story about Manon by Antoine Francois Prevost from 1731 was inspirational to many artists. In 1884 Jules Massenet composed an opera Manon, to be outshone by Giacomo Puccini with his opera which he named Manon Lescaut in 1893. A century later Manon came to life again this time as ballet. Artistic director of Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan staged choreography on the the music by Jules Massenet which lived to a great success. This year it is on the repertoire of Teatro de Bellas Artes.
Under the leadership of Srba Dinic, ballet ensemble Compañía Nacionalde Danza and Orquesta del Teatro de Bellas Artes will attune their movements and phrases to show the audience that literature, ballet and music can become one. Manon is the last ballet in this season so the whole ensemble is particularly inspired to perform the story which has lived through centuries in different artistic forms.
