A Manon to remember,
This review is from: Manon [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Adelaide Festival,1995.An unforgettable portrayal of Manon by Justine Summers - quite an exquisite dancer/actress.Beautifully danced there is chemistry between her and Steven Heathcote - a generous,convincing Des Grieux.The last scene (Manon's death) with its impressive choreography is masterly performed!Beautiful production,sets and wardrobe.The music comes from various operas by Massenet, but from his Manon. Choreographed by Sir K.MacMillan,it follows in its essence the story by Abbé Prevost,though slightly different.A DVD to enjoy and watch, over and over.
