  1. Manon

    Manon is an opéra comique in five acts by Jules Massenet to a French libretto by Henri Meilhac and Philippe Gille, based on the 1731 novel L’histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by the Abbé Prévost. It was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris on January 19, 1884. Prior to Massenet's work, Halévy and Auber had used the subject for musical stage works. Massenet also wrote a one-act sequel to Manon, Le portrait de Manon, involving the Chevalier des Grieux as an older man. The composer worked at the score of Manon at his country home outside Paris and also at a house at The Hague once occupied by Prévost himself. Manon is Massenet's most popular and enduring opera and, having "quickly conquered the world's stages", it has maintained an important place in the repertory since its creation. It is the quintessential example of the charm and vitality of the music and culture of the Parisian Belle Époque.

    When I found out that I was going be Juliet, it felt much more real than Manon, because Manon is one of those ballets that you probably do after Juliet, so that never really sunk in to be honest, but knowing that I was going to be Juliet ... I just felt so excited and I couldn't believe that it really was going to be me doing it.
