Summary
Written in 1811, shortly before his suicide at the age of 34, Heinrich Von Kleist's "The Price of Homburg" is a strangely haunting drama based of a 17th century story about a Prussian nobleman who, in disobeying military orders, is sentenced to death, but nevertheless defeats the invading Swedish forces. Von Kleist transforms this incident into an exploration of reality and dream, passion and dissemblance, cowardice and bravado. Written as if by the very spirit of poetry, Von Kleist's "Prince" starts Frank Langella and represents an exuberance in the triumphs of life. This hitherto unknown German classic was given its American premiere by New York City's renowned experimental Chelsea Theater Center and was shot entirely on location at the famous Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville, North Carolina
