About

In few words:

Created in 1978 for the Royal Ballet, Mayerling, along with Manon, is British choreographer Kenneth MacMillan’s most popular ballet. Keen to “make ballets where audiences are caught up in the fate of the characters”, the choreographer injects classical language with a powerful infusion of solemnity and authenticity. Mayerling, a three-act work, delves into the family secrets and political intrigues of the Habsburg monarchy at the time of Sissi. MacMillan’s eminently theatrical production focuses on the tragic story of Crown Prince Rudolph who commits suicide with his mistress Marie Vetsera in the Mayerling’s hunting lodge. To the music of Franz Liszt, the choreography brilliantly translates the fraught emotions of these characters abused by history.
