Rudolf is then drawn into a downward spiral of political intrigue, violence, and ultimately, suicide. It was created by MacMillan, one of the 20th Century’s greatest choreographers, for The Royal Opera Ballet and is a signature work for the company.

The performance begins at 7:30pm on Thursday 13th June and will last around three hours with two intervals throughout.
