Northern Michigan University’s music department will present a high-definition screening of the London Royal Ballet’s production of Manon by Kenneth MacMillan. The screening will utilize state-of-the-art video and audio technology in the Jamrich Hall auditorium (room 1100). It is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday, April 12. An afterglow with free pizza will follow the presentation.
Manon is based on an 18th century novel and set in Paris. It is a tragic love story about a beautiful young woman who falls prey to moral corruption as she is torn between the man she loves and her desire for wealth and luxury. The ballet features music composed by Jules Massenet.
