The Prince of Homburg
While experiencing a debilitating bout of insomnia, the Prince of Homburg (Andrea Di Stefano) falls prey to a prank by the Elector of Brandenburg (Toni Bertorelli). In his sleepless stupor, the prince fails to hear orders to avoid fighting with Swedish forces -- and so proceeds to ride into battle and defeat them. In retaliation for his actions, the elector sentences the prince to death. Meanwhile, the elector's determined niece Natalia (Barbora Bobulova) campaigns to save the prince.
