Read the complete synopsis.
Born as a simple Duchess in Bavaria, she became, at age sixteen, the first lady of one of the largest empires in Europe: the Austrian Empire ruled by the Habsburgs. Read more about the historical Elisabeth.
I only own a few recordings of this show, though there are many others available. Read my reviews of the CDs.
To hear some sound clips from the recordings, or to see some video clips of TV performances, visit my sound & video page.
Part of the reason I love this show so much is the incredible people who have played some of its roles. Read a bit more about some of my favourites.
