Meet Ziryab, the 9th-century musician and cultural icon, in this timeless play with live music: a musical genius, a star of the Baghdad court, and a fashion guru. The Fifth String playfully tells the story of his beginnings, his life as an immigrant to Cordoba, and his lasting contributions in music, fashion, and culture that continue to reverberate today. Widely credited with introducing Persian influences to Spanish music, Ziryab's life is an inspiration for artists and innovators of all ages.
