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.
This prize draw has now expired.
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.
