The Royal Ballet’s 'Mayerling' to be screened live to the Corinium Cinema


The Royal Ballet’s dark and dangerous Mayerling screened live to the Corinium Cinema

The Royal Ballet’s dark and dangerous Mayerling screened live to the Corinium Cinema.

The thrilling ballet Mayerling will be broadcast live from the Royal Opera House in London’s world-famous Covent Garden to the Corinium Museum cinema on Sunday 21 October, 2pm. This haunting and emotional production reveals the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court.
 
Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan brings 19th-century Europe to life with this dark and dangerous portrayal. Based on the true story of Crown Prince Rudolf, the ballet reveals a country on the brink of collapse, impending war in Europe and a love affair between Rudolf and his mistress Baroness Mary Vetsera that ends in tragedy. Audiences are encouraged to feel something new through dramatically evocative scenes that challenge the conventions of classical ballet.
 
Mayerling pushes the dancers with some of ballet’s most technical and emotional roles. The cast includes Crown Prince Rudolf danced by Principal Dancer Steven McRae, Mary Vetsera (Sarah Lamb), Countess Marie Larisch (Laura Morera), Colonel Middelton (Nehemiah Kish), Empress Elisabeth (Kristen McNally) Emperor Franz Joseph (Gary Avis), Princess Stephanie (Meaghan Grace Hinkis), Mitzi Casper (Mayara Magri) and Bratfisch (James Hay).
 
The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences the best seat in the house with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers. Audiences are never far from a performance at the Royal Opera House with most UK viewers located within 30 miles of a cinema screening. In 2017/18 over one million people globally saw a production of world-class opera or ballet at one of over 1,500 cinemas in 51 countries.
 
Mayerling starts at 2pm at the Corinium Museum Cinema, lasting three hours and including presenting two intervals. The production contains scenes of an adult nature and may not be suitable for children under 12 years old.
