ELISABETHA?s Dark World……
?I was frightened, rooted to the spot and a cold shiver ran down my spine so that I almost got paralysed. Still at the same time when the moon lightened the grave the storm begun once again to break off like he would run into his old track.
Driven by great curiosity I came closer to the grave to find out what it was all about why it?s deserted on such a spot.
I stepped around it and read over the Dorian pole in German language:
Count Alexander Zu Sankt Magdalena
Looked for and found dead
At the top of the grave stuck an iron pole which was obviously driven through the marble.
Something so phantastic and scary laid over the whole thing. Through mysterious circumstances I finally found after 131 years the Mentor for the project
Through the project ELISABETHA there was a own corner of the occult radio play built with a 4-track-recorder. An attempt to adapt ? with taking into account Black-Metallic elements ? The phantastic literature of the 19th century for the nowadays musical theatre?
