Manon Blu-ray (The Royal Ballet) 2018

Sarah Lamb and Vadim Muntagirov star as tragic lovers Manon and Des Grieux in this performance of Kenneth MacMillan's Manon, a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory. Nicholas Georgiadis's period designs set the ballet in the contrasting worlds of Paris luxury and Louisiana swampland, while the intense emotion of MacMillan's choreography is complemented by a score drawn from Massenet's music.

"a signature classic of the Covent Garden repertory" The Times

"By Act 2, there was an aloofness about Lamb’s Manon that was chilling, especially the icy glint in her eye as she snubs des Grieux... Vadim Muntagirov was her noble, but impoverished chevalier, moving with eloquent fluidity and a sensitive partner to Lamb throughout... Ryoichi Hirano was fabulous as Lescaut, displaying a wide range of emotions, painfully funny in his drunken pas de deux with his unamused mistress, the delicious Itziar Mendizabal." BachTrack
