ROH 22/23 - Mayerling (Live)
Over 2022/23, an astonishing 13 productions from The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera will be broadcast in cinemas, bringing the joy of live performances to audiences.
The Royal Ballet
Running time: 3 hours and 25 minutes (including two intervals).
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 ballet remains a masterpiece of storytelling and this revival marks 30 years since the choreographer’s death. Expect to see The Royal Ballet at its dramatic finest across potent ensemble scenes and some of the most daring and emotionally demanding pas de deux in the ballet repertory.
