From the duo who created last year’s award-winning sell-out hit Seattle Vice comes a new cabaret about love, classical music, art nouveau, green fairies, and absinthe. Bohemia by Mark Siano and Opal Peachey is a new musical set in 1890s Prague that combines the music of Dvorák and Chopin, with art by Alphonse Mucha. Historic artists like Sarah Bernhardt, George Sand, and Oscar Wilde interweave with beautiful green fairies, aerial numbers, dance, burlesque, classical piano battles, comedy, and original songs.
Famous Czech composer Antonin Dvorák has hit a wall and prior to composing his magnum opus he looks to the bottom of a bottle of absinthe for inspiration. In this macabre and mystical dream cabaret Dvorák is visited by the ghost of late composer Frederick Chopin. Chopin and many other famous Bohemians guide Dvorák as they search for the true source of inspiration and grasp at artistic immortality. Directed by Brandon Ivie and choreographed by Katy Tabb. Performed at the Triple Door January 19th-27th 2018.
There will be a couple choreography jams in December 2017, but rehearsals begin in earnest on January 2nd. Evening rehearsals 7-10pm 4 nights a week with 1 weekend afternoon rehearsal. The Triple Door is our venue, and there are many late night shows. Please make sure you can commit before applying.
