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.  Music - Franz Liszt.

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. 

Recorded live on Wednesday 5th October 2022. Encore, on-screen Broadcast on Sunday 9th October at 2pm.

3 hrs and 25mins including two intervals.   Crown Prince Rudolf - Ryoichi Hirano.  Baroness Mary Vetsera - Natalia Osipova.

Tickets £16.50 or concessions £14.50.   Booking fee per transaction - £1 on line or by telephone,  50p at the Box Office.
