I love that photo of Dupont beaming.  Usually, she has such a severe look on her face.

 

The younger Belingard son is transfixed by something!

Dupont's last Manon was beamed into cinemas in France and a smattering of other countries. It's scheduled for television broadcast on May 30, though we'll have to see whether or not the Culturebox stream will be geo-blocked.

The Manon stream is geo-blocked, although my VPN service is able to circumvent it. A novelty of the stream is that Culturebox is offering a split-screen option, with the filmed performance on the left, and real-time backstage shots on the right. For now I'm sticking to the audience view, but afterward I may give the backstage version a whirl, all two hours and seven minutes of it.

Thanks for that bit of info. Obviously anyone interested in watching should try to access the stream for themselves to see what happens.

For me the stars of the show were the demi-soloists and corps. Their dancing, apart from Axel Ibot's synchronization problems in the brothel trio, was fabulous. I was also favorably impressed by Benjamin Pech as Monsieur G.M. and by Stéphane Bullion as Lescaut in the second act. However I can't say I was especially moved at any point, which was the fault of the ballet, not the dancers.
