Music by Frédéric Chopin. Choreography by John Neumeier.
At a theatre performance of ‘Manon Lescaut’, the young and naive Armand is utterly captivated after meeting the ravishing and most desirable courtesan Marguerite Gautier. Their encounter gives birth to a passionate yet doomed love.
Alexandre Dumas, fils’s novel comes to life on the Bolshoi stage, with prima Svetlana Zakharova as the ailing Marguerite seeking love and redemption from her life as a courtesan. The Bolshoi brings choreographer John Neumeier’s work of rare beauty and tragic depth to new emotional heights, accompanied by Chopin’s romantic piano score.
The performers are Svetlana Zakharova as Margeurite, Edvin Revazov as Armand, Andrei Merkuriev as Monsieur Duval, Anna Tikhomirova as Manon Lescaut, and Semyon Chudin as Des Grieux.
