Cabaret De Paris brings glam revue to Sydney
Be transported by the atmosphere and excitement of a Parisian-themed revue with a parade of international entertainers and the daring beauty of exquisitely bejewelled exotic dancers when Cabaret De Paris comes to the Capitol Theatre in Sydney on May 27 and 28.
Old-school showgirl glamour is mixed with aerial artists, pole dancers, circus acts, magicians, and of course, the famous cancan dancers, in a lavish French cabaret.
Audiences are promised an “enthralling” show as they fall under the charm of former Moulin Rouge star Marissa Burgess, a well-known Australian showgirl. Born and raised in Newcastle, Burgess stared in three multi-million dollar revues – Femmes, Femmes Femmes, Formidable and Feerie. She’s the longest-serving star of the Moulin Rouge’s 120-year history.
The “crème de la crème of showgirls” have been “sourced” from all over the globe, with many of the dancers having already graced the stages of Moulin Rouge, The Lido and other French cabaret revues.
Illusionist Michael Boyd will perform mind-boggling disappearance acts and incredible magic that will keep audiences guessing and have the whole family “entranced.”
The classically trained husband-and-wife duo Cyriaque and Angela Kinkingnehun combine dance with illusion and acrobatic lifts, all the while performing in colourful haute couture.
The jewel of Cabaret De Paris is the exquisite lavish costumes that will light up the stage. Made in a traditional Parisian style, the dancers are adorned in feathers sequins and rhinestones. For family-friendly viewing, the matinee performance is recommended.
Cabaret De Paris has played to sell-out crowds at Melbourne’s Crown Casino, Jupiter’s Casino on the Gold Coast and Her Majesty’s Theatre in Adelaide. Tickets are now available through ticketmaster.com.au.
