Fans of ballet will have the chance to see Royal Ballet… “Live”… from the Royal Opera House of London, on Thursday, October 16th, at 9.15 p.m. (Megalo Arsenali, CAM).
Kenneth MacMillan’s acclaimed tragic ballet “Manon” will be presented to the audience of Rethymnon.
Manon’s brother Lescaut is offering her to the highest bidder when she meets Des Grieux and falls in love. They elope to Paris, but when Monsieur G.M. offers Manon a life of luxury as his mistress she cannot resist.
With the Lescauts’ encouragement Des Grieux cheats at cards in an attempt to win Monsieur G.M.’s fortune. They are caught and Manon is arrested as a prostitute. She is deported to New Orleans. Des Grieux follows. On the run in the Louisiana swamps, Manon collapses from exhaustion.
