The Royal Ballet : Manon

This adaptation of Abbé Prévost’s novel embodies Kenneth MacMillan at his best, his acute insight into human psychology and his mastery of narrative choreography finding full expression in the impassioned duets of the central couple, visceral and urgent in their desire. The heroine’s struggle to escape poverty make Manon one of the most dramatic and devastating of ballets, emphasized by Nicholas Georgiadis’ evocative designs that reflect the juxtaposition between Manon’s impoverished origins and the lavish world she longs to inhabit. The 2023/24 Season celebrates the centenary of Nicholas Georgiadis.

Coup de Chance (Stroke of Luck)

A comedy-drama thriller written & directed by Woody Allen.A story of romance, passion and violence set in contemporary Paris. Shot all over the city and a little bit in the countryside, it revolves around a romance between two young people who are old friends and devolves into marital infidelity and ultimately crime.
Fanny and Jean have everything of the ideal couple: fulfilled in their professional life, they live in a magnificent apartment in the uptown of Paris and seem as in love as on the first day. But when Fanny meets, by chance, Alain, a former high school friend, the situation is reversed. They see each other again and become close very quickly. Alain, now a writer, makes no secret of the fact that he has always been in love with her. At the same time, during the social evenings of her husband, who, in his profession, “makes already rich people richer”, the woman finds herself increasingly uncomfortable.

Fanny et Jean ont tout du couple idéal : épanouis dans leur vie professionnelle, ils habitent un magnifique appartement dans les beaux quartiers de Paris et semblent amoureux comme au premier jour. Cependant, lorsque Fanny croise par hasard Alain, ancien camarade de lycée, elle est aussitôt chavirée. Ils se revoient très vite et se rapprochent de plus en plus.
