Mayerling DVD (The Royal Ballet) 1994

Notify me when this product is available:

The Royal Ballet presents a stellar cast in Kenneth MacMillan's Mayerling, 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.

Irek is wonderful

I absolutely loved this ballet. I initially bought this because Darcey Bussell is in it but Irek was wonderful and so was Lesley Collier, as well as Darcey. It is quite a sad story but the dancing an acting were top notch. However, my 81 year old Mum wasn't that enamoured, But I loved it and can't wait to watch it again.
