Broadcast ROH Live Ballet: Mayerling (Macmillan)
Monday 15 October7.15pm


The Royal Ballet

Mayerling

Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan

Composer Franz Liszt

Mayerling is a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory, with its emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer. Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf.

From the ballet’s start, the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue that drive the story to its violent climax in a double suicide.

The large cast allows for impressive ensembles in addition to the ballet's many solos of distinctive character and pas de deux of disturbing eroticism. This ballet, bursting with intensity, madness and passion, proves that sometimes the truth is more scandalous than fiction.

This broadcast from the Royal Opera House is classified (12A)

Broadcast ROH Live Ballet:

La Bayadère (Makarova)

Tuesday 13 November7.15pm

The Royal Ballet

La Bayadère

Choreography Natialia Makarova after Marius Petipa

Composer Ludvig Minkus

In Makarova's beautiful re-working of this 19th Century classical ballet we are drawn into the exotic world of Indian legend.

The tale tells the story of a beautiful temple dancer and a prince who loves her but marries another.


The famous, 'white act'', The Kindom of the Shades, is brought to life in shimmering moonlight. A corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince's lost love haunt his mind.  With this etherial act alongside a world of temple dancers and noble warriors, expect to be transported to another world.

The melody and moods of Minkus' music perfectly matches the precision of the choreography and of the storytelling.
