A passionate love condemns itself to bow to the reason of state. Peacemaking marriage policy to end the war. The fiancée becomes the stepmother. As a result, a disastrous love triangle in the midst of a generation-father-son conflict. Unfulfilled love. Jealousy. Intrigue. Inquisition. A revolutionary friend who ultimately lays down his life as a proof of friendship for the other....

Imperial court of the monastery Klosterneuburg

In the stylish open-air ambience of the baroque imperial court of Klosterneuburg Abbey visit annually to the
11.000 spectators the small but very fine opera festival. Over the years, the annual productions have developed into a fixed point in Austria's summer cultural landscape. The fabulous acoustics of the court do not require any amplification technology. The Imperial Court has room for 846 opera lovers and is home to the third largest open-air opera festival in Austria!
