Manon: a Photo Gallery

Manon Act 3 Pas de Deux

The 40th anniversary revival of Manon continues at The Royal Ballet. The ballet’s final performances will be marked by Carlos Acosta’s debut in the role of Manon’s immoral brother, Lescaut, opposite the tragic lovers of Zenaida Yanowsky and Roberto Bolle, while earlier in the run, Alice Pennefather captured the dream team of Rupert Pennefather and Sarah Lamb in this MacMillan masterpiece:

She has recently returned to London and rediscovered her love of everything Ballet.
