Alice Pennefather’s latest rehearsal gallery covers the Royal Ballet’s revival of MacMillan’s Mayerling. The production returns next week with the first outing – this run – of Carlos Acosta & Leanne Benjamin, with the last performances marking the retirement of two MacMillan greats: Mara Galeazzi (13 June, relayed on BP Big screens) and Leanne herself (15 June).
