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.
Kenneth Macmillan’s 1978 ballet, set to music by Franz Liszt, remains a masterpiece of storytelling and this revival marks 30 years since the choreographer’s death.
