About

This collection brings together three extraordinary ballets by Kenneth MacMillan, one of the 20th century’s most influential choreographers whose work forms a pillar of The Royal Ballet’s repertory. MacMillan pushed the boundaries of dance, and these three signature works exemplify his searching genius: the emotional intensity and rich physicality of his choreography, through vivid crowd scenes and passionate pas de deux; the daring and the darkness of his complex and fascinating characters; and the mesmerizing, sensuous music to which his steps were always created.

Special custom box-set including a 62 page accompanying book

‘Lovers of classical ballet should, without question, go and see the Royal Ballet’s magnificent production of Manon. Ballet sceptics, meanwhile, should see it at least twice.’ - The Telegraph (Manon)

‘Kenneth MacMillan's choreography for this haunting tale is transcendent … stunning set and costume designs…’
- The Times (Mayerling)

‘If you have been waiting for a truly outstanding Romeo and Juliet to appear on Blu-ray, then look no further.’ - International Record Review (Romeo and Juliet)
