Notes & Reviews:

This new high-definition film of Kenneth MacMillan's hugely-popular ballet 'Manon' is the perfect twin to his classic 'Romeo & Juliet', recently released on September 29th, 2009. Once again, the romantic male lead is taken by the charismatic Carlos Acosta, and once again his beautiful partner is Tamara Rojo. Prevost's famous tale is set to the sensual music of Massenet and the Royal Ballet's staging is played out against the sumptuous set and costume designs of Nicholas Georgiadis.

"If you saw and loved them in the recently-issued Romeo and Juliet, you'll find Rojo and Acosta irresistible in this long and complex Macmillan choreography. Another classy evening from the Royal Ballet. -BBC Music Magazine
