The red carpet was rolled out in imperial style for the cast and VIP guests at Schönbrunn.
For a long time, Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary was considered the Empress of Hearts. As Dominique Davenport embodies her imperial highness in the event series of the same name, which premieres at Cannes in October 2021 under the direction of Sven Bohsi, Sisi also managed to crown herself as Empress of the Quetta.
At the world premiere of the second season on Wednesday night, Davenport with her film “Franzel,” performed by Yannick Schumann, made the tribute in Vienna and, along with global marketing company IP Austria, was invited to attend the screening and premiere at the Parkhotel Schönbrunn not far from Schönbrunn Palace.

“Empress” in Vienna
In the spirit of the People’s Empress, who was a media star and role model in her day, the second season will be a multimedia access event: on RTL+, on free TV, on YouTube and as a podcast as well as on social media. “Access to all channels, where access is due: Sissy is a rating queen and this makes our advertising clients especially happy,” said Walter Zinggel, Managing Director of IP Austria, at the premiere.
“I am honored to be able to celebrate the premiere of the second season of ‘Sisi’ in Vienna. This is something special for me because I know that Austrians have a special affinity for Sisi. In this wonderful room at the Parkhotel Sitting at Schönbrunn gives me the feeling of being an empress,” says Dominique Davenport .
Yannick Schumann says: “After we’ve been talking about the Hofburg in Latvia for months, it’s great to finally be in the place where Sisi and Franz really lived. Here in Vienna is the perfect setting for our premiere!”
As of December 16, 2022, the second season of the event series will begin RTL+ to see. The first free TV show will follow on December 27-28, 2022 RTL and in ORF 1.
