Kenneth MacMillan’s ballets are landmarks of twentieth century dance. His works from The Invitation to Romeo and Juliet, Manon to Gloria, Song of the Earth to The Judas Tree engage, delight and challenge audiences around the world.
MacMillan brought a strong moral sensibility to classical ballet. In his hands, ballet was not a fairytale art. On the contrary, it was charged with theatrical urgency and it mirrored profoundly the human condition in ways only dance can.
This website is an introduction to his life and work and to his continuing legacy. A project of The MacMillan Estate, it was launched in December 2009 to mark the eightieth anniversary of Kenneth MacMillan's birth, and 2017 will see the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death.
