A stage dialogue in honour of Emperor Franz I from the early 19th century

We are presenting our our collections. In October 2020 we are presenting one of the oldest theatre posters from the collections of Slovenian Theatre Institute: A Prologue of an Unknown Play–Worship, staged at Royal Estate Theatre in Ljubljana on the birthday of His Majesty the Austrian Emperor Franz I (1768-1835). In the first and second scene the Slovenian provinces: Ilirija, Karniola and Karintija appear in a mutual solemn dialogue.
