To enter, simply answer the following question:
In what city is the first act of Manon set?
|AN OPULENT TALE OF LOVE VS MONEY |
Manon is a rare thing − at once a ravishing feast for the senses, and the utterly compelling story of a young girl who forsakes true love for wealth.
A naive girl on her way to a convent, Manon dreams of the city. Des Grieux, a young student, is instantly smitten by her, and they run away together.
But once in Paris, Manon quickly succumbs to the lure of luxury, and her course is set for both tragedy and redemption. Sir Kenneth MacMillanís sweeping vision of decadent 18th century Paris, richly costumed and lusciously orchestrated, is brought to life by the breathtaking artistry of The Australian Balletís renowned company of dancers.
