Royal Ballet: Mayerling


Ballet in three acts 

 Dangerous desires, family Secrets and political Intrigues twist through Every moment of daring Choreography in Kenneth Macmillan’s ballet inspired by True events. Mayerling is a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory, with its emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer. Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf. From the ballet’s start, the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue.
