Twenty years after its acclaimed premiere, "Elisabeth" is returning to Vienna, where it will play to sold-out evenings at the Raimund Theater. The awards for the gripping stage hit go to Michael Kunze (text) and Grammy award winner Sylvester Levay (music). And of course to the sparkling actors.
The musical tells the dramatic and touching story about the life, works and sorrows of Empress Elisabeth and lets the audience dive into the lost world of the Habsburgs.
Moving music, impressive choreography and an opulent set have been enchanting audiences around the world since the original production in 1992: the musical empress has already received 8.5 million visitors in eleven countries - from Germany, Finland, Sweden and Belgium to Switzerland, Korea and Japan. She thus steps into the footsteps of the capricious wife of Emperor Franz Joseph I., who was exuberantly revered during her lifetime.
