#ROHmayerling Ryo's cautiously slow burning Rudy finally made its point in Act 3. Major points for his courageous partnering of hell-bent-on-destruction Osipova.

Have we become overly used to Watson's very modern #ROHmayerling? Super-sub Hirano danced the role more princely and reserved (truer historically) and, with gutsy partnering, had wonderful chemistry with Osipova, a wickedly deviant Mary. A more human Rudolf.

My highlight of #ROHMayerling was the PDD between Hayward and Hirano at the end of Act One. Absolutely electrifying. Also very excited by Corrales’ very special debut as lead Hungarian Officer.

Cesar Corrales makes a big impression in his @theRoyalBallet debut as lead Hungarian officer, as he did in this morning’s rehearsal. Interestingly Ryo danced this role while already a Principal in the opening cast of the previous run. #ROHMayerling

Started shaking as soon as I saw Natasha with the gun in her hands. That said, she’s rocking it! #ROHmayerling

For me the women pulled tonight through to the end - with the early help of Corrales. Hoping for better as the performances continue #rohmayerling

Well, Mayerling continues to be the most dramatic thing to ever be seen on a stage!
