I noticed that a famous play by Alonso Alegria isn't part of your inventory. Written in 1969 is now regarded as the best theatrical piece by a Peruvian writer.
I will have the honor to perform this play in the role of amazing Blondin. I am very proud and wanted to share with you all.

Hi, does anyone know if Annie Frances Emmett, who was married to Carlos Trower the African Blondin in 1875 was a singer or performer? I am trying to work out if she is a relation of mine.
Thank you

At age7my grandfather came home saying a man had carried him on a tightrope. His mother ignored this,but next day she heard that Blondin had carried a child over the Cheddar gorge.
I don't know if the story's true, but he did become a well known acrobat.

I have a letter from my great grandfather, which claims we are related to Blondin. The letter states my great great grandfather only referred to his mother as Madame Blondin, and his sister was named Adele. lookinf for info on surviving kin.
