Bohemia is a freewheeling cabaret about love, classical music, art nouveau, green fairies and absinthe. Set in 1890s Prague, Bohemia combines the music of Dvorák and Chopin, with art by Alphonse Mucha.
Historic artists like Sarah Bernhardt and George Sand, interweave with beautiful green fairies, dance, burlesque, classical piano battles, comedy, and original songs.The story centres around famous Czech composer Antonin Dvorák who has hit a wall and prior to composing his magnum opus, so he looks to the bottom of a bottle of absinthe for inspiration. In this mystical and dreamy cabaret, Dvorak is visited by the Green Fairy - Wormwood - who brings the ghost of Chopin and many other famous Bohemians to guide Dvorák on the search for true inspiration in the pursuit of artistic immortality.
"This dreamlike cabaret is part musical theater, part burlesque, part aerial and acrobatics and all fun." - Broadway World
"An ode to artistic romanticism... a beguiling, mildly naughty and well-provisioned evening." - Seattle Times
