The Royal Ballet’s Mayerling screened live to UK cinemas

The thrilling ballet Mayerling will be broadcast live from the Royal Opera House in London’s world-famous Covent Garden to UK cinemas on Monday 15 October 2018.

This haunting and emotional production reveals the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court. The live screening will be followed by an encore screening on Sunday 21 October 2018.
