Friedemann Vogel will make his highly anticipated debut as Crown Prince Rudolf in Mayerling - most famous for its highly demanding male lead role, who hardly leaves the stage during this three-act ballet, dancing seven pas de deux with five female partners in the last phase of his turbulent life. Friedemann will perform for the opening night of Stuttgart Ballet’s premiere of this masterpiece about the heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire set in the late 19th Century by Kenneth MacMillan on 18th May.
