The Jester's Supper (play)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Jester's Supper (Italian:La cena delle beffe) is a historical play by the Italian writer Sem Benelli, which was first staged in 1909. In 1919 the play was put on in New York City, under the name The Jest, at Broadway's Plymouth Theatre.[1] It portrays a violent and cruel rivalry in the Florence of Lorenzo the Magnificent.



The play was the basis for an opera La cena delle beffe composed by Umberto Giordano with a libretto written by Benelli himself. It premiered at La Scala on 20 December 1924.


In 1942 the play was adapted as a film, The Jester's Supper, directed by Alessandro Blasetti and starring Amedeo Nazzari and Osvaldo Valenti.[2] It was made at Cinecittà in Rome. The film was a popular success.
