Eduardo is a young composer with a promising future. Upon receiving a phone call, he moves to Cairo to compose an operetta. The woman who has made the phone call is Martha, a self-proclaimed princess who has run away from home and from a marriage of convenience and who has been in love with Eduardo since she first set eyes on him in New York. From this point, the plot of this comedy of errors thickens with endless twists and turns.
Luna de miel en El Cairo is a fine example of Spanish musical theatre in the aftermath of the Civil War, after the style characterised by eroticism and puns had been censored. Brought by masterful director Emilio Sagi, this iconic operetta in two acts by Francisco Alonso and José Muñoz Román is coming back to the Arriaga Theatre, giving us a new chance to be delighted by the Granada-born composer, who drew inspiration from American shows for musical numbers like ‘Llévame a una boîte que esté de moda’, ‘Tus ojos brujos me cautivaron’ or ‘Aquella noche en El Cairo’.
