Synopsis of “The Prisoner of Zenda”

There is a rich English gentleman
His name is Rudolf Rassendyll
goes for a holiday
in Ruritania
and he meets King Rudolf the Fifth

King Rudolf looks like Rudolf Rassendyll
except that he is clean shaven
They have drink and dinner
King is drugged by the wine
sent by Duke Michael of Strelsau

The King is too “ill” for Coronation
Rudolf has to impersonate him
He is crowned as the King at the Cathedral
Real King is captured by Duke Michael

Rudolf continues his role as King
Rules the country with responsibility
with the help from the loyal Sapt and Fritz
Rudolf falls in love with Flavia ah..

Rudolf chooses honour before love
He risks his life to save the King
The King is then back to Strelsau
and marries his dear Princess Flavia

Rudolf sacrifices his true love
He goes back to his hometown
and lives alone in a small house
Each year a red rose to Flavia
with the message “Flavia-Rudolf-always”

I write the synopsis of "The Prisoner of Zenda" as the lyrics of a song and I sing it according to the rhythm of the song entitled "Love You To Death" by KCM feat Soul Dive (OST of Baker King, Kim Tak Gu). I will sing it to my students on this Saturday too, hope they will like my singing.
