Jonathan Kelly in Manon: The Australian Ballet

Manon: The Australian Ballet

1995 NR

The Australian Ballet's Justine Summers, Nigel Burley, Lynette Wills and Steven Heathcote take center stage in British choreographer Kenneth MacMillan's robust 1995 interpretation of "Manon." Capturing the passion that grows between young Parisienne Manon and destitute student Des Grieux, the classic ballet hurtles toward its heartrending denouement as Des Grieux risks everything to keep his paramour in his arms.
