The young Sisi's desire for freedom is insatiable. At a ball her mother announces that her eldest daughter is destined to marry Franz Joseph. The announcement is interrupted by Elisabeth's unfortunate accident. The meeting between the unconscious girl and Death changes both their fates. Unable to take her with him, the otherworldly being becomes engaged to the girl forever. Young Franz Joseph falls irredeemably in love with the unruly Sisi and marries her, against his mother's wishes. In a life full of hardships, she is rarely happy; her loneliness is relieved by the only friend she can always count on: Death, whom she asks to take her life at last, beside the coffin of her beloved son, but in vain. In the end, the murder weapon falls into the hands of an Italian anarchist, so that Elisabeth can find peace in the arms of her beloved.

Margaret Island

Margaret Island provides a peaceful hideaway from hectic downtown Budapest with large green areas, flowery gardens, old trees, and lots of entertainment.

The festival program on Margaret island is rich and diverse: concerts, musicals, dance shows, theatrical performances for children and adults, comedies at three venues:

 

  • Open-Air Theater in Városmajor (Buda) – venue for many children programs
  • the Open-Air Theater on Margaret Island (trams 4 and 6, Margitsziget stop) and
  • the Water Tower on Margaret Island.
