Cabaret diva Mama Alto invites you to a unique and fleeting world: step into a smoky and mysterious 1930s blues club at Chapel Off Chapel for three special performances this December.
The darling of the demimonde is here to sing her heart out for you, despite uncertain winds of change howling just outside. Velvet and smoke, debauchery and treachery, crystal chandeliers and bootleg moonshine, scandal and danger, flappers and politicians, clashing ideologies and syncopated melodies… A world verging on turmoil. Is it so different from our own?
Mama Alto’s Blues in the Night reunites the acclaimed diva with pianist extraordinaire and musical directress Miss Chief and special guests portraying larger-than-life denizens of the club, as they turn the iconic Chapel Off Chapel space into an underground speakeasy mixing old world glamour with contemporary politics.
Mama Alto: Blues in the Night
Chapel Off Chapel, 12 Little Chapel Street, Prahran
