Manon / 13 November 2005

13 Nov
Tonight we went to see Manon with Sylvie Guillem.
It was fantastic seeing her re-interpreting the classic MacMillan ballet in her own unique style.
There are no words to describe how exciting it was…
the fact that she got the most loud and long standing ovation that I have ever witnessed…describes the atmosphere in the auditorium.
Surely it was history in the making. A great ballerina re-creating a signature piece. It’s even more moving casting my mind back to the problems she had with MacMillan and how she overcame them by making the choreography her own.
A great night. one to remember for a very long time.
