Thursday 13 June
The Piazza, MediaCityUK
A dark drama of political intrigue, twisted romance and morbid obsession, set to dramatic music by Liszt. Mayerling was created for The Royal Ballet by Kenneth MacMillan, one of the 20th century’s greatest choreographers, and is a signature work for the Company. This performance will feature Royal Ballet Principals Edward Watson, Mara Galeazzi and Sarah Lamb.
MediaCityUK is delighted to announce that this year’s Royal Opera House BP Big Screen performances will be beamed live from Covent Garden to the outdoor screen on the Piazza, MediaCityUK.
The screenings are FREE and no tickets are required - but attendees are encouraged to get down early if they want to grab one of the limited deckchairs available. Alternatively attendees are welcome to bring down a blanket or camping chair.
DockBar and DockGrill, (located next to the screen) will be available for food and drinks as well as wagamama, Prezzo and Damson – which all offer great views of the screen. Restaurants within the Lowry Outlet Shopping at MediaCityUK will be available for dining and/or drinks.
2013 marks the first of a new five-year commitment from BP to support the live and free screenings from the Royal Opera House. These world-class productions of opera and ballet will be beamed live from Covent Garden to 22 locations.
Every BP Big Screen is a unique experience and this year will be no different. Kenneth MacMillan’s Mayerling will mark the final performance at the Royal Opera House of much-loved Royal Ballet Principal Mara Galeazzi in the role of Mary Vetsera.
