After the smashing success of their operetta The Trojan Boat at the RuhrTriennale 2005, Mnozil Brass and Bernd Jeschek ave now written their first "serious" music theater project.
Bertl, a beautiful prince from Melk, is struck by Cupid's arrow and falls in love with Irmingard, the emperor's granddaughter. However, she disdains the handsome prince, which makes the emperor, who is longing to retire, so angry that he throws her into the darkest dungeon of his prison.
Bertl is consumed by longing for her, and she also suspects that she might not have made the smartest move.
May we hope for a happy end, or will the power of fate tear both of them into the abyss?
