Out of the collective subconcious of Mark Siano and Opal Peachey, the duo who created last year's award-winning sell-out hit SEATTLE VICE, comes a cabaret about love, classical music, art nouveau, and absinthe. BOHEMIA is a new musical set in 1890s Prague that combines the music of Dvořák and Chopin, with art by Alphonse Mucha. Historic artists like Sarah Bernhardt, George Sand, and Oscar Wilde interweave with green fairies, aerial numbers, dance, burlesque, classical piano battles, comedy, and original songs.
Famous Czech composer Antonin Dvořák 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 Dvořák is visited by the ghost of late composer Frédéric Chopin. Chopin and many other famous Bohemians guide Dvořák as they search for the true source of inspiration and grasp at artistic immortality.
Taking place at Seattle's new art+food venue Nordo's Culinarium, there will be drinks and dinner as well as an absinthe cocktail service for those who wish to partake.
Mark Siano and Opal Peachey's last musical SEATTLE VICE won the Gypsy Rose Lee Award for Excellence in Local Composing presented by Seattle Theater Writers.
Bohemia features new compositions by Mark Siano, Opal Peachey, and Dayton Alleman with a three piece classical trio backed by a vocal chorus. The Head Chef for Bohemia is Mark Wissing with drinks designed by Maximillian Davis. Original aerial numbers performed by Tanya Brno.
