Original Soundtrack, Title Melodies from the Trilogy with Romy Schneider, Sissi (1955), Sissi the young Empress (1956), Fateful Years of an Empress (1957), reproduced for the first time and written lyrics. The wonderful title melodies originally composed by Anton Profes have been newly arranged, produced and the lyrics have been written by Alessandro. These melodies are merged into one song.

„Wenn die Maske Fällt“. Romy Schneider brought the role as an actress in Sissi to highest perfection which gained her worldwide fame. This role simply made the Empress Sisi be called the queen of hearts, even so, Romy always was fighting against this image her whole life long. Not only that the incredibly successful trilogy brought Romy high popularity but also the image of the „sweet girl“, which she described herself „ like clue“ She always wanted to be recognized as a serious actress.

The true story of Empress Elisabeth is not really told through the films – they only present beauty, dignity and harmony. Let’s say; a fairy tale story. The real life of Sissi often held back behind media fantasies. Her true personality was drawn by anorexia and depression (manic-depressive); she was always on the run of herself, seemed to suffer of compulsions and was constantly on the search for inner peace. She was not a happy woman after all. You see everybody has to carry one’s own burdens. On this occasion, we also give thoughts to Romy Schneider, a fantastic actress who made the legend of Sissi to be alive forever. 1938-1982. The Year 2012, the Year of „Sisi“ and Romy.
