Mayerling was created in 1978 by genius choreographer Kenneth Macmillan, and tells the tragic true story of Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria. Suffering from emotional instability and drug addiction, Rudolph is forced to marry Princess Stephanie but soon becomes involved with the young Mary Vetsera who he eventually makes a suicide pact with. Set to powerful music by Franz Liszt, the duets in this ballet are extraordinary.
