The Royal Ballet - Manon

The Rhumbelow Theatre in Umbilo will be screening the dramatic tale of love and loss in “The Royal Ballet - Manon” from the Royal Opera House Season 2023/2024.

Principal dancers Natalia Osipova (as Manon) and Reece Clarke (as Des Grieux) lead the cast that includes Alexander Campbell, Mayara Magri and Gary Avis.

Together, they are set to bring MacMillan’s expressive and impassioned choreography to life.

Torn between her desire for a life of splendour and riches and her devotion to her true love, Des Grieux, the feckless and capricious Manon, pays the ultimate price.

According to the Royal Ballet website, “This adaptation of Abbé Prévost’s novel embodies Kenneth MacMillan at his best, his acute insight into human psychology and his mastery of narrative choreography finding full expression in the impassioned duets of the central couple, visceral and urgent in their desire.

“The heroine’s struggle to escape poverty makes this one of the most dramatic and devastating of ballets, emphasised by Nicholas Georgiadis’s evocative designs that reflect the juxtaposition between Manon’s impoverished origins and the lavish world she longs to inhabit.”

Where: The Rhumbelow Theatre in Umbilo.

When: Sunday, March 10, at 2pm.

Cost: R150 per person. Tickets can be purchased through Computicket or by emailing [email protected].
