This new high-definition film of Kenneth MacMillan's hugely popular ballet Manon. The romantic male lead is taken by the charismatic Carlos Acosta, and once again his beautiful partner is Tamara Rojo. Prévost's famous tale is set to the sensual music of Massenet and The Royal Ballet's staging is played out against the sumptuous set and costume designs of Nicholas Georgiadis.
