The Production

A Night at the Alhambra Café is a musical fable that mingles classical and contemporary sounds with an ages-old story told in a compelling new way.

Three men—Mr. C, Arthur, and Cosimo—live and work alongside one another in an urban cabaret, the Alhambra Café. Amidst the scent of pastries and spices, they center their lives around Mr C’s daughter, Mira.

Much like the princess in the tower, the passionate, young Mira discovers she must leave the safety of the palace—the café, the only home she has ever known—to seek her own identity.

Will the men be able to let their beloved princess out of the tower?

This late night adventure in the Alhambra Café will enchant audiences with inviting characters, modern legends, and extraordinary music. Selections by Taj Mahal and John Lee Hooker blend easily with Paganini, Sarasate, and newly commissioned works from Gabriela Frank, Jon Jang, Mayru, Nate Shaw, and Paul Moravec.
