The Triple Door transforms into 1890s Prague in Bohemia, a story about love, classical music, art nouveau, green fairies, and absinthe.
The cabaret stars of the stage come directly to the patron’s tables in an immersive experience. Guests receive the traditional French absinthe service with ice fountains, ornate slotted spoons, sugar cubes, and absinthe. The Absinthe is provided by award-winning Jade and Lucid absinthes.
Presented by Opal Peachey and Mark Siano, this musical combines live orchestral music from classical composers Antonín Dvořák and Frédéric Chopin, with original compositions. The music is deftly woven into a show filled with dance, burlesque, comedy, and decadent, naughty fun.
The story centers around famous Bohemian composer Antonín Dvorák who has hit a wall prior to composing his magnum opus. In a move of desperation he turns to a bottle of absinthe for inspiration. In a whimsical and mystical dream cabaret, Dvorák is visited by the ghost of late composer Frédéric Chopin along with a host of green fairies. Chopin and other famous Bohemians guide Dvorák in a search for the true source of inspiration, grasping at artistic immortality.
The set and costumes are inspired by the art of Alphonse Mucha. Historic artists Sarah Bernhardt and George Sand interweave with fictional green fairies, aerial numbers, dance, burlesque, classical piano battles, comedy, and original musical theatre songs.
