The Time to Act (Reprise)

[ SZEPS, CLEMENCEAU, ANDRÁSSY, EDWARD ]
It's time to act!
 
[ CLEMENCEAU ]
Let us begin!
 
[ ALL ]
It's time to act
 
[ CLEMENCEAU ]
To recognize
 
[ SZEPS ]
And to call out
What your father will never see
Make a statement!
 
[ ANDRÁSSY ]
Look to the future
Because the time is ripe
 
[ CLEMENCEAU ]
When you stand up for your beliefs
No lengths are too far
 
[ ANDRÁSSY ]
Isn't this what we want most?
 
[ EDWARD ]
Yes, it's in your hands now
 
[ ANDRÁSSY ]
Build a future with us
 
[ SZEPS ]
Just sign here...
 
[ FRANZ JOSEPH ]
'A new constitution for a free and liberal Europe'
Bring him to me.
You are not worthy to be my heir.
You will come to the German embassy tonight to honor your cousin, Emperor Wilhelm. You will wear the Prussian uniform.
 
[ TAAFFE ]
This was delivered today.
'United unto death' is a charming little sentiment. I prefer 'Forever yours.'
The world is full of willing women. It...it's only love.
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
It's...only love...

So Much More (Reprise)

[ MARY ]
He's the prince of a certain world...
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
You seemed so free and genuine...
 
[ MARY ]
...where only power counts for anything.
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
...I feel as if fate has sought me out.
A glance has never moved me in this way...
 
[ MARY ]
Even if I were part of that world...
 
[ BOTH ]
Why do I feel so much more?
So much more than I've ever felt before
Much more than I ever thought could be possible
And is even more than it seems
Much more than fantasy
So close and so real as it's never been
Is it possible?
It can't be true
I feel and I crave so much more
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
What is it that moves me so deeply?
That grips me so?
With every breath, rips my heart apart?
 
[ MARY ]
I can't escape the desire
I can't withdraw
Although I try so hard to resist
 
[ BOTH ]
Forevermore so much more
Much more, consuming like never before
It's more than just magic that unites us
Much more than seemed possible
More, much more than just a wish
As if heaven itself decided it for us
More than the strongest wind
That howls and roars and swirls around us
From far away it brings so much more

My Dear Hero

[ RUDOLPH ]
I'm not in the mood.
 
[ WOMEN ]
Let your desires transport you
Come with me to paradise
 
[ MEN ]
All your promises will be broken
But the end comes so sweetly
 
[ MAN ]
I think you all know all too well what I want
But I'm just afraid to ask
I confess, I can't do it myself
But I need it so much
I'm asking you to just teach me how
 
[ WOMAN 1 ]
It's easy to do in the kitchen
But it would be much better in bed
 
[ WOMAN 2 ]
You can scream or you can sigh
Yes, even silently can be nice
 
[ WOMAN 1 ]
Whether with a wife or with a girlfriend
Yes! You have the agony of choice
 
[ MAN ]
If it doesn't work out, just try again!
 
[ WOMAN 2 ]
Whether standing or kneeling,
Live life to the fullest!
 
[ WOMAN 1 ]
It's possible even alone
 
[ WOMAN 2 ]
But it's also fun with others!
 
[ WOMAN 1 ]
Do it resolutely, without hesitation, or slowly and gently
 
[ WOMAN 2 ]
Come, my angel, let's start tonight!
 
[ MEN ]
It frees you, yes, it releases you
And when it's over, you'll pay the price of intoxication with your life
Let it happen until your senses disappear
 
[ WOMEN ]
My dear hero
Come dance with me
All that you want
is waiting here
Everyone's dream
melts away like foam
So just let yourself go
Let it happen
A bit of death...goodbye...
Because every sense has long disappeared
Let the night free you!
 
[ WOMAN 2 ]
Do it outside, do it wherever the desire strikes you
 
[ MAN ]
Dignified in a suit or just simply without any clothes
 
[ WOMAN 3 ]
Do it entirely without inhibition--come, we'll do it right here
 
[ MAN 2 ]
I'd love to, but first, a glass of beer!
 
[ WOMAN 3 ]
Dearie, aim your weapon
It just requires one shot
 
[ INNKEEPER ]
Only a weakling doesn't finish what he's started
Everyone else can manage to do the deed
 
[ WOMAN 3 ]
This moment of excitement makes the heart vibrate in kind
 
[ INNKEEPER ]
And then, suddenly, comes the explosion
 
[ ALL ]
Just one moment, and then you'll be happy
Those who accept this will pay the price of intoxication with their life
Let it happen until your senses disappear
Risk the jump into paradise
and an angel will come to you
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
What the hell are you doing here?
 
[ MARY ]
If this is the world that you want to live in, then here I am!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Mary, this is no place for you. Go...
 
[ MARY ]
So? It seems to be good enough for you! For two weeks I've searched everywhere for you.This is the last place I would have expected to find you!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Well, people usually find things in the place they least expect to find them.
 
[ MARY ]
Oh, hilarious!
You like these women? Would you like it if I were like them?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
These women mean nothing to me!
 
[ MARY ]
Then I don't understand what you're doing here!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
You can't understand. It's far too complicated.
 
[ MARY ]
What is complicated?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
My life is complicated!
 
[ MARY ]
It seems pretty simple to me: you drink too much.
You wallow in self-pity and then you keep drinking!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
You wouldn't understand. And I pray to God that you never will.
 
[ MARY ]
You pray that I won't understand because you will never do anything to change things!
And I thought you wanted to change the world.
Stop playing at being a prince and become one!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
You don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about.
It's not me who is at risk, it's you!
You are in danger. You and your family.
 
[ MARY ]
Everything has its price! I've made my choice. I love you.
When will you decide?

The Augustinian Church

[ STEPHANIE ]
Did you know that we were married in this church? Rudolph and I?
 
[ MARY ]
Your Highness.
 
[ STEPHANIE ]
I can understand that the sacrament of marriage may seem like an antiquated institution for a modern woman like yourself. But for me, it was an extremely special day.
I was about your age, then.
Do you know what is kept in this church? The hearts of the Habsburgs!
Fifty-four, currently. From time to time I come here in order to remind myself that even the Habsburgs have hearts.
 
[ MARY ]
Your Majesty, why...
 
[ STEPHANIE ]
Please, let's dispense with the formalities. There's no one here but us two and God.
 
[ MARY ]
I sincerely apologize if I've caused you any grief. That was not my intention.
 
[ STEPHANIE ]
At first, Rudolph's indiscretions shocked me. But I think a person can get used to almost anything.
Then, as our first child was born, I hoped that he would curb his manly desires. But said desires seemed to be insatiable.
You are not like all the others?
 
[ MARY ]
I love him!
 
[ STEPHANIE ]
I live with him!
So the prince on his white horse gradually loses his charm. For a few years, you carry the burden. The burden of a path you will never tread!
 
[ MARY ]
I love him and he loves me. There's nothing more that I need to know!
 
[ STEPHANIE ]
Do you know the way that he clears his throat before he tells a lie? There's no warning before the big ones, but before the little ones, he clears his throat every time. Before the tiny lies that he wants to protect you from. He knows that I will always forgive him. But you? You don't live by the rules. You use your youth and your beauty and take whatever you want. You live in a world above all the rules, but you won't be able to flee from the consequences of your actions. No one will forgive you.
 
[ MARY ]
Why do you hate me so?
 
[ STEPHANIE ]
Because he loves you so!
That is all. Leave me.

Apocalypse Salon II

[ MITZI ]
A safe haven for us
When night descends
A safe haven where we
Don't owe the world anything
 
[ MAN ]
No one dies in the spotlight
in such ravishing beauty
like the magnificent actress
Sarah Bernhardt
 
[ WOMAN ]
Dying is Sarah Bernhardt's specialty!
 
[ WOMAN 2 ]
She does it every night
 
[ MAN ]
And on Saturdays, twice!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Give me the bottle!
 
[ MAN ]
The usual?
 
[ INNKEEPER ]
Excuse me, gentlemen, but we are closed to the public.
 
[ MAN ]
Oh, listen to this!
 
[ WOMAN ]
Tell us then!
 
[ MAN ]
United forever--not even death could separate them
A saying they probably took seriously!
He shoots...
And she shoots...
in the same moment,
Now they're together forever!
No Viennese humor here
That was no joke!
Longing for love, yet embraced by death
struck right in the heart
Who seeks the promise of true happiness
Who will be next to disappear into endless ecstasy
Let it happen tonight!
 
[ WOMAN ]
Rudolph, I would die with you!
 
[ WOMAN 2 ]
I'd die every night with you!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Oh? And who will be around to resurrect me?
 
[ WOMAN 2 ]
I think I could manage!

Editorial Office of the Vienna Daily

[ CLEMENCEAU ]
The usual story
 
[ ANDRÁSSY ]
Antisemitism may be the usual story, Monsieur Clemenceau, but here an entirely new chapter has been opened!
 
[ VOGELSANG ]
Yes, and the style hasn't improved
 
[ SZEPS ]
And how would it? With Count Taaffe's filthy handprints everywhere...
They're here!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Oh God...
Monsieur Clemenceau, Andrássy--all the way from Budapest!
and...I don't believe we've been acquainted?
 
[ VOGELSANG ]
Heinrich Vogelsang, Your Highness
 
[ SZEPS ]
My trusted lawyer
 
[ ANDRÁSSY ]
Have you shown the crown prince our proposal?
 
[ SZEPS ]
No, but...
 
[ EDWARD ]
Rudolph, those who have gathered here, you and I and George, are the coming generation of rulers--the political leaders of tomorrow! But we need to begin here and now to form alliances. We need to agree on a set of principles that will form the foundation of a new Europe.
 
[ CLEMENCEAU ]
Your Highness, in this box you'll find the 20th century that the world deserves. And it's in our hands to ensure that the people receive it.
 
[ ANDRÁSSY ]
Europe needs peace, no? The people yearn for a liberal constitution, like they yearn for air and light!
 
[ CLEMENCEAU ]
Are we just to stand by as we watch the Prussians lead us into a dark century full of blood, fear, and hate? I think we all know where your sympathies lie, but we need to know if you're ready for more.
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Ehm...gentlemen, I am also convinced that we cannot continue to be Prussia's toy...
 
[ ANDRÁSSY ]
Ach, Rudolph! The old Europe would rather perish than...

The Conference Room

[ FRANZ JOSEPH ]
The calls of the German nationalists for a union with Germany are growing louder and louder!
 
[ COUNT TAAFFE ]
That's exactly why we need to renew our alliance with Germany!
There are rumors, Your Majesty, that there is an alliance between France and Great Britain in the works.
 
[ FRANZ JOSEPH ]
Unthinkable!
 
[ COUNT TAAFFE ]
Also...it seems that Julius Felix is playing a not insignificant role in this matter.
 
[ FRANZ JOSEPH ]
Is the man hiding behind this name really my nephew Johann Salvator?
 
[ COUNT TAAFFE ]
Majesty, I hardly dare to say it, but I fear there is evidence that supposes that...the crown prince...
 
[ FRANZ JOSEPH ]
My son! Impossible!

The Skating Club / Tralala

[ ENSEMBLE ]
Who can say what the future will bring?
We laugh and dance in elation
Spinning as though there won't be a tomorrow
Today everyone is in love!
 
[ WOMAN 1 ]
I'm looking for the real thing
 
[ MAN 1 ]
So, ma'am, understand,
If the real thing is nowhere to be found
Snatch up what's in front of you!
 
[ MAN 2 ]
Laugh, joke, amuse yourselves
Float, dance over the ice!
 
[ MAN 1 ]
Celebrate as long as happiness is on your side
Because before long it might exact its price!
 
[ ENSEMBLE ]
Tralala tralala tralala
Yes, who can predict what the future will bring?
We laugh and dance in elation
Spin as though there won't be a tomorrow
Today everyone is in love!
 
Tralala tralala tralala
 
Yes, who can predict what the future will bring?
When today happiness beckons so promisingly?
Spinning on the ice elegantly and with charm
Dancing through the night arm in arm
 
[ WOMEN ]
Continue to spin... and
 
[ MEN ]
Continue to spin... and
 
[ WOMEN ]
Continue to sway... and
 
[ MEN ]
Continue to sway... and
 
[ WOMEN ]
It's clear to all
It's open to all
 
[ MEN ]
Perhaps tonight
A spark will ignite...
 
Tralala tralala tralala
 
[ RUDOLPH AND MARY ]
Yes, who can see what the future will bring?
Today we'll take every chance, even if we fail
Spinning as though there won't be a tomorrow
Today everyone is in love!
 
[ ENSEMBLE ]
Yes, who can predict what the future will bring?
We'll dance as long as the music keeps playing
Reach for happiness, otherwise it'll move in itself
But today everyone's free to do so themselves!
 
[ ALL ]
Tralala tralala tralala
We're dancing tonight without a care
 
[ MARY ]
Julius Felix! I still can't believe it!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Shh!
Rudolph!
Tonight I'm just Rudolph.
Oh, come, call me by my name
 
[ MARY ]
I like Julius better
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
No, Rudolph! Please...
 
[ MARY ]
Rudolph
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
My name has never sounded better
 
[ MARY ]
Achoo!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
I see your cold is as beautiful as ever!
 
2020.09.27.

In the Moment I First Saw You

[ RUDOLPH ]
I see your cold is still as beautiful as ever!
 
[ MARY ]
But still not as complicated!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Yes, I admit, my life is like a balancing act
For example, look at Willigut over there!
 
[ MARY ]
Who is Willigut?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
A pair of Count Taaffe's numerous eyes and ears.
Willigut has been especially assigned to me
 
[ MARY ]
A spy?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
The Minister President would probably describe him more as a secret agent
That sounds more innocuous, and therefore more official
 
[ MARY ]
How terrible!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
You get used to it
Why don't we have a little fun with Willigut?
 
[ MARY ]
And how would we do that?
Rudolph?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Let's begin by acting as if we're whispering
Quietly in each other's ears
Sigh and then laugh and then turn to face me
And I'll pull you towards me
 
[ MARY ]
Should it seem as if this is all new?
Furtive, bashful, and shy?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
No, nothing's new, so we can drop that act
 
[ BOTH ]
And now we'll play this game
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Float as if in the clouds with me!
 
[ MARY ]
Let all the ice melt away!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Just as it happened in the moment when I first saw you
Mary!
 
[ MARY ]
He's writing...
Should we provoke him a bit more?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
What exactly do you have in mind?
 
[ MARY ]
I could lose myself in your eyes, because I've long been lost myself
And I confess it openly, how could it be otherwise
Since it happened in the moment when I first saw you
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Come, let's risk even more
Ignite a fire on the ice until it burns
 
[ MARY ]
Until the sparks force him to flee the rink
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Now it's over for him
 
[ MARY ]
Now our hearts can beat freely
 
[ BEIDE ]
Just as it happened in the moment when I first saw you
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
I want your hat as well!
 
[ BOTH ]
Only when the night fades away
And the time to part approaches
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
I can hardly believe it, because as I close my eyes, it's all as it happened...
 
[ BOTH ]
Like in the moment when I first saw you!
 
[ MARY ]
Can I--Can I tell you a secret?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Yes
 
[ MARY ]
I like Julius Felix a lot more than the crown prince
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Can I also tell you a secret?
...me too!
Life should always be like this...
 
[ MARY ]
Life is always like this...
At least in this moment
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
But it should always be like this!
And... for everyone
 
[ MARY ]
As far as I know you're the crown prince
Can't you just order happiness?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Oh, if only life was so easy!
No, real life is more...
 
[ MARY ]
Complicated?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
There it is again, that word. It follows me. Like Willigut.
 
[ MARY ]
Is there no place on earth where life isn't complicated?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Of course there is!
 
[ MARY ]
Where?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
The place is called Mayerling...
Mayerling is... beautiful
Especially in the spring, when everything is in bloom...and hope is everywhere
I always go back there in order to dream the dreams of Julius Felix.
There, the impossible is possible
Insanity seems rational,
Foolishness seems wise,
and the ugliness of the world vanishes
But I'm sure that sounds...
 
[ MARY ]
It sounds wonderful!
Bring me there?

Prater / Trust in Us

[ MARY ]
Hmm, you seem today more like a frog than a prince!
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
I feel more like a frog right now
 
[ MARY ]
What's wrong?
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
In these last few weeks with you, I've been...
happier than I'd ever dared to dream!
 
[ MARY ]
Rudolf!

Apocalypse Salon

[ MITZI ]
Is everything okay with you, Rudolph? You seem somewhat distracted
 
[ MAN ]
You'd have it easier if you were French, dearie!
Lately, Rudolf has developed a liking for all things French
 
[ WILHELM ]
Or Russian!
Rudolph loves Russian women!
 
[ EDWARD ]
Damn it, Willie, please do me a favor and for once, don't talk politics.
 
[ WILHELM ]
Now I'll show you how a real German fights on two fronts at the same time!
That Clemenceau should try and imitate this!
 
[ EDWARD ]
I prefer to dedicate myself completely to my campaign!
“Good-night, sweet prince.
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”

A Shining Future

Our dream of the future
Carries us far away
It forges a new path forward
and imbues this place
Yes, I see a brilliant era approaching, inexorably close
Our way to the future has opened up before us
 
On the way to the future
To the dazzling future
A brilliant future
Where visions become reality
Yes, I see this future
The way ahead is still blocked
Our way to the future leads into a new world
 
2020.09.17.

Curtain Up

[ ENSEMBLE (Nobility) ]
What a theater, what splendor
What brilliance fills the night!
A triumph of the new era
It's almost time for the curtain to rise!
 
Everyone holds themselves elegantly
Sophisticated and charming
Everyone glows and everyone laughs
Tonight is an exciting night!
 
One is owed what they're due,
Here jewelry from all over the world is to be seen
Vienna is a city of power and riches
We spend money because we can!
 
[ ENSEMBLE (The public) ]
All of these things don't belong to you because you took them from us!
You let us go hungry and just mean to exploit us!
 
[ WOMAN (Public) ]
You give us nothing but empty promises!
 
[ ENSEMBLE (Nobility) ]
These people will only behave when they believe they've gotten what they're due.
 
[ COUNT TAAFFE ]
Pay no attention to this self-important whining!
 
[ ENSEMBLE (Nobility) ]
Let the rabble mock themselves
Unsophisticated, overexcited
Just see the promise this night brings
Vienna shines with prosperous light
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Count Taaffe, isn't the light inspiring?
 
[ COUNT TAAFFE ]
Your Highness, it seems to me that perhaps its importance has been overhyped.
 
[ RUDOLPH ]
Now the dream of a new world has begun
 
[ COUNT TAAFFE ]
But, of course, God remains first above all
 
[ ENSEMBLE (Nobility) ]
Everyone gleams and everyone laughs
Today is an exciting night!
See how the world converges in Vienna
Everyone who thinks something of themselves
 
Curtain up, we're all prepared
Compose yourself, it's almost time
Listen to the choir's fanfare
Something big is coming!
 
[ MAN ]
His majesty, Emperor Franz Josef
 
[ FRANZ JOSEF ]
This year marks the celebration of my fortieth year on the throne of Austria-Hungary.
Tonight we celebrate the dedication of the new Hofburg Theater.
With the simple pulling of this lever, the theater will gleam for the first time with electricity
And we look forward to a shining future ahead of us...
 
[ GUESTS ]
(Celebration, 'Bravo!')
 
[ WOMEN, in canon ]
The truth is never quite far from fiction, and that means in Vienna:
A little indiscretion, what's wrong with that? Tomorrow it will be forgiven
That's the Viennese shame, soon we...
(Shot, screaming)

An Emperor Protects the State

[ FRANZ JOSEPH ]
You don't want to listen!
No, you don't understand!
What needs to happen so that you'll do what you're told?
No, you don't understand!
 
How malicious can you be?
You call this the work of a hero?
Out of everyone, it's my son
Who commits the highest treason against me?
 
Can you not see the truth?
How can I continue to stand by you?
To stand aside while our family is ripped apart at your hand?
 
Was this price worth it to you?
The price you pay for your principles?
That what your heart so desperately wants:
Can you continue to carry on this way?
 
Or could it be possible?
Did I always know, deep down?
Could some of your dreams actually be realized?
Unquestionably real?
 
You're my son, my only son
But with you I have to break tradition
Were I to act as you think is right
I'd lose myself...
 
No, it's you who are wrong! It must be so!
You are the fool! See things as I do!
It's the statesman within me who's speaking now
No matter what comes between us
It can't affect me.
High treason can only be handled by an emperor
An emperor protects the state
 
You are not worthy to be my heir.
 
2020.09.11.

Mary's Song

[ MARY ]
I feel deep down inside
Somewhere very close
My soul is waiting to be moved
As I've never been moved before
A heart that beats with mine
And dares to venture forth with me in this harsh world
 
Is this just a dream in my head
That will float away come morning?
Oh, to find the soul
That will venture into fire by my side!
 
2020.09.10.

The Courage to Act

So much should have happened long ago
But I never dared
to forge my own way forward
 
I've waited so long for this moment
But even now, I don't feel prepared
Is this reality or only a dream
Or is my fight finally beginning?
 
The time has come where deeds
and no longer words count
The time has come
Where hesitations can't be allowed
Whether right or not --
from now on I'll follow the voice
that speaks to me
Because the vision before me is so clear
And even dreams can sometimes come true
But it requires strength and leadership
 
It requires the courage to act
From now on I'll forge a completely new path
From now on nothing will be impossible
 
The time has come when deeds
And no longer words count
The time has come
when I can no longer return to what was
It'll succeed, or not --
but now I'll fight with all my determination
for a future in this country
There's so much put on my shoulders
But it requires the will to fight
It requires the courage to act
What counts is willingness and leadership
It requires the courage to act

Time to act

(Edward:)
In this document, our principles are laid out.
Clemenceau has already signed it and I will do it
as well, but we need you too.
You are the crown prince of the greates empire of the world. When you climb the throne...
 
(Rudolf:)
Who knows, when that will be!
 
(Andrássy:)
What?
 
(Rudolf:)
Believe me, I see the inclined plane, on which we are sliding down. But I am not even allowed to say what I feel and think
and therefore I must...
 
(Andrássy:)
Let's talk confidentially
Prince I say it openly
Words are edifying,
but they don't bring and do not force what time
demands.
Far too optimistic!
 
(Szeps:)
Let's talk honestly
our situation urges us
even if it seems difficult, you must see and understand,
that waiting won´t get us anywhere.
Be realistic!
 
(Mann 2 Vogel:)
You have remained quiet so for so long. Aren´t you born to do much more?
(Szeps:)
If we do not rebell today, we will soon be lost.
 
(Rudolf:)
What are you expecting from me?
 
(Clemenceau:)
Join us, sign the constitution.
Your signiture...
 
(Rudolf:)
That would be treason!
I can not possibly decieve my father to such an extent.
 
(Clemenceau:)
Do you prefer to betray your country?
Think about it!
Austria driven into a war forced by Germany!
 
(Edward:)
A war, that will affect the whole world
 
(Szeps:)
It is time to stand up and to determinedly go ahead.
 
(Edward:)
(It is) time to look fate in the eye.
(It is) time to fight.
 
(Szeps:)
It is time to act.
 
(Clemenceau:)
Let us begin.
 
(Szeps, Clemenceau, Andrássy, Vogelsang:)
It is time to act
 
(Clemenceau:)
to begin
 
(Szeps:)
and to realize, that your father won´t accept.
Make a statement!
 
(Szeps, Clemenceau, Andrássy, Vogelsang:)
It is time to act.
 
(Clemenceau:)
Let us hesitate no more.
 
(Szeps, Clemenceau, Andrássy, Vogelsang:)
It is time to act.
 
(Andrássy:)
to realize
 
(Szeps:)
and name, which paths lead into the abyss,
make a statement!
 
(Andrássy:)
Let us go forward, the time ready.
 
(Clemenceau:)
If you stand by your values, no path is ever too far.
 
(Andrássy:)
Isn´t that our most sincere wish?
 
(Edward:)
Yes, it is only up to you.
 
(Andrássy:)
Form a future together with us.
 
(Szeps:)
Sign here.
 
(Rudolf:)
If I sign this...
 
(Edward:)
If...
Make a decision, Rudolf, but don´t wait too long.
 
(Andrássy:)
The time of writing and dreaming is over, Rudolf.
