10 Feb-15 March 2006. The Royal Danish Ballet returns to the Gamle Scene (Old Stage) of the Det Kongelige Teater for eight performances of its outstanding 2003 production of Manon, created by British choreographer Kenneth MacMillan (1929-1992). Set in 18th century France, this modern classic based on Prvosts novel Manon Lescaut (1731) tells the tale of a beautiful young girl torn between the desire for pure, noble love and for wealth and worldly possessions. Her naivety leads her to flirt with the darker sides of human nature an adventure which ends in tragedy. Jules Massenets music provides the emotional support for some of the most perfectly constructed dance sequences in modern classical ballet. Sumptuous period costumes and set are by designer Mia Stensgard. Tickets 565Dkk-90Dkk. 10, 14, 17, 25 Feb and 9, 10, 13, 15 March. All performances at 20.00 except 25 Feb at 12.00.
