Renato Biribin Cast as Valentino

Renato Biribin will play the lead role of Duke Valentino in the world premiere production of Valentino: a play in verse at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. The festival takes place in Hollywood, California June 17-27, 2010.

In the play, Duke Valentino must face the sins of his past in order to protect his family. Brilliant and ambitious, Valentino wages a war to reclaim the Papal States for Rome, but he is haunted by the memory of murdering his brother. His beloved sister, Lucrezia Borgia, may already be plotting his destruction. Now his mercenary captains have formed a conspiracy against him. Valentino's only hope for survival lies with two Florentine men of genius: Leonardo da Vinci and Niccolò Machiavelli.

Renato Biribin recently played the lead role of Pericles in Pericles, Prince of Tyre at the Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival.
