Mayerling

 

 
 
 
Sep 22, 2017 - Sep 24, 2017
Houston Ballet / Sarofim Hall

Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Mayerling is a three-act narrative ballet, set to John Lanchbery’s powerful arrangement of Franz Liszt compositions, based on the historic 1889 incident involving the murder-suicide of the sole heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf, and his 17-year-old mistress, Baroness Mary Vetsera. Sir MacMillan’s last full-length ballet boldly requires dancers to fully embody intense characters through dramatic acting and dancing. Houston Ballet is pleased to be the first American company to perform this historic and lavish production about disastrous obsession and unrequited love.
