Mayerling - the first one

Does anyone by any chance remember the ballet, or even have a programme which would give some clues? I'm just curious to know how it was done!

".....they will not accept my email address! I have tried a few times.
So I will tell you about Mayerling, and you can pass it on.
It was told as a straight narrative but as I remember, it was not very straight forward.There were many scene changes and lots of props and I think the audience found it a bit hard to follow. I (Donna-Day Washington)played the part of Mary Vetsera, the prince's lover and I loved performing the ballet. The music (Faure) was so inspiring, and Peter Darrell, who was a dream to work with, choreographed the most beautiful pas de deuxs for Richard Rutherford and I. The ballet had only two performances, in Winnipeg,which was a pity, but the pas de deux was danced on tour by Richard and I."
She adds: If there is anything else anyone wants to know, I'd be happy to help.
