The Royal Ballet returns to Boston with one of Kenneth MacMillan's best-known and much-loved works, "Manon." MacMillan's seductive version of Prévost's Manon Lescaut features an Act I pas de deux that is arguably the most provocative choreographic moment in ballet history. Created in 1974 to the music of Jules Massenet, and set against Nicholas Georgiadis' sumptuous Regency designs, The Royal's "Manon" is a work of engrossing narrative and touching sadness that soars to romantic heights before plunging to its climax of despair and death. Tamara Rojo, who dazzled Boston audiences in Swan Lake, returns in the title role of Manon. For more information, go to http://www.celebrityseries.org/perf_649_royal.htm#
