MAYERLING - ROYAL BALLET 'LIVE' VIA SATELLITE at the Festival Drayton Centre

Dangerous desires, family secrets and political intrigues –a true story told through ballet.


Inspired by dark and gripping real life events, this Royal Ballet classic depicts the sexual and morbid obsessions of Crown Prince Rudolf leading to the murder-suicide scandal with his mistress Mary Vetsera. The oppressive glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court in the 1880s sets the scene for a suspenseful drama of psychological and political intrigue as Rudolf fixates on his mortality.

Kenneth MacMillan’s 1978 balletremains a masterpiece of storytelling and this revival marks 30 years since the choreographer’s death.Expect to see The Royal Balletat its dramatic finestacross potent ensemble scenes and some of the most daring and emotionally demanding pas de deux in the ballet repertory.
