Borgia Infami Officially in the Books!

Last weekend marked the open and close of the Two- Day World Premiere of Borgia Infami by Harold Blumenfeld. Performed at Washington University’s Edison Theater, Borgia Infami was full of drama and dark deeds committed by the infamous Borgia clan, specifically Rodrigo, who later became the brilliant and corrupt Pope Alexander VI; his son Cesare, whose ruthless pursuit of power is immortalized in Macchiavelli’s writings;  and especially Rodrigo’s daughter Lucrezia, alleged poisoner of the family’s enemies.

Did you know? The Student Prince opened on Broadway in 1924, and was the longest-running show of the 1920s (it even out-performed Show Boat!) It was revived twice more on Broadway (in 1931 and 1943.) After the success of the movie version, it was revived in the 1970s by Light Opera of Manhattan and in 1988 by the New York City Opera. It is also performed each summer at the Heidelberg Castle Festival, a tradition since 1974. #WOSTLPrince

Do you know this famous tune? The singing is by Mario Lanza, who recorded all the music for the 1954 movie version of "The Student Prince" before backing out of the filming process. He was replaced by actor Edmund Purdom who lip-synced to Lanza's recordings. Enjoy! #WOSTLPrince
