Manon watched by thousands across the UK.
Thank you to everyone who came along to last night’s BP Big Screening of Manon. It was a superb night: wonderful performances, beautiful weather and lovely crowds (over 6,000 in Trafalgar Square.)
Don’t forget, if you enjoyed last night, please come back for Madam Butterfly on 4 July and Cinderella on 13 July.
