Serenade from Student Prince
The Student Prince is an operetta with music by Sigmund Romberg and book and lyrics by Dorothy Donnelly. Based on Wilhelm Meyer-Förster's play Alt Heidelberg, the show was the most successful of Romberg's works, running for 608 performances.
The operetta contains some of the most beautiful, yet gruelling, tenor arias in the operetta repertoire, notably the Serenade ("Overhead the moon is beaming"). Mario Lanza made many of the songs famous all over again with his singing on the soundtrack of the 1954 MGM film The Student Prince.
This work displays the beautiful tone of the tuba in the higher tessitura and is certainly an audience pleaser!
