The Student Prince
It was a long way from the little town of Bad Säckingen to the lights of Broadway – and finally to Heidelberg!
In 1854 the poet Victor von Scheffel wrote glowingly of Heidelberg in “The Trumpeter von Säckingen”. In 1901 the play “Alt Heidelberg” by Wilhelm Meyer-Förster premiered in Berlin, and went on to become the stage hit of the century for German audiences. And 23 short years later, the mythical and lyrical charm of this meanwhile almost legendary city was sealed with the stamp of universal applause – to standing ovations on Broadway.
