Enter for the chance to win two tickets to see Kenneth MacMillan’s classic story ballet Manon, at the London Coliseum from 16 – 20 January 2019.
The story of Manon comes from L’Abbé Prévost novel L’Histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut. It tells the story of a well-meaning young man, Des Grieux, led astray by his love for a young woman, Manon, who he finds irresistible. Many other men also fall for her – some willing to buy her off with a luxurious lifestyle. Full of twists, the plot includes gambling, theft and prostitution, and Manon is a character so unscrupulous that the book proved too scandalous for its time: it got banned in 1733 and 1735.
