Massenet’s lush score provides the perfect sound world for MacMillan’s great ballet. Tamara Rojo and Carlos Acosta offer a Manon and Des Grieux of heartbreaking intensity.
Anthony Dowell’s magnificent production honours the spirit of this great ballet, with Fabergé-inspired designs by Yolanda Sonnabend. Marianela Nuñez is magnetic as Odette/Odile, with The Royal Ballet at its finest.
