Synopsis:
The Royal Ballet presents a stellar cast in Kenneth MacMillan`s daring and powerful ballet, filmed in 1994, with John Lanchbery`s sumptuous scoring of music by Franz Liszt. The dramatic soundscape is matched by MacMillan`s penetrating interpretation of the events surrounding the double suicide of Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria-Hungary and his young mistress, Mary Vetsera, at Mayerling in January 1889.
