Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mayerling is a ballet created in 1978 by Kenneth MacMillan for the Royal Ballet, London. Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria is forced into a marriage of state with Princess St phanie of Belgium; Countess Marie Larisch von Moennich, the mistress of whom he is tiring, introduces him to the very young - but hardly inexperienced - Baroness Mary Vetsera who becomes his next mistress; they make a suicide pact. The Emperor, Franz Joseph, has a mistress, Katharina Schratt, whom the Empress Elisabeth officially acknowledges, giving her the post of "reader" - and giving a portrait of Schratt to the Emperor as an anniversary present; only his mother, the Archduchess Sophie objects.show more
