A glorious night of ABT ballet at the Metropolitan Opera House. What a way to end Memorial Day weekend! My orchestra seat (Row Q was fine with a house supplied cushion and occasional use of opera glasses) had a fine view of La Bayadere -- beautiful dancers, score, set, lighting. A treat...Thanks, Goldstar.

*June 2-7, 2014: Manon
From the ornate salons of Paris to the mysterious bayous of Louisiana, Kenneth MacMillan’s dramatic masterwork is a heartbreaking tale of romance, intrigue and betrayal. Set to Massenet’s lush score and inspired by the classic novel Manon Lescaut, this engrossing ballet soars to searing theatrical heights as the beautiful courtesan Manon chooses between the temptations of wealth and true love. Filled with morally questionable characters who engage in gambling, erotic duets, shady dealings and more, it represents the antithesis of fairy tale ballets with happily-ever-after endings.
Running Time: 159 minutes
- ABT recommends that children be at least 6 years of age to attend the Company’s performances at the Metropolitan Opera House. Manon is recommended for audiences age 14 and over.
