After dazzling audiences across the seas, the glamorous Parisian revue show Cabaret de Paris will return to Brisbane with its biggest cast ever during winter for three shows on Friday 5th & Saturday 6th July.
Cabaret De Paris is a stage spectacular celebrating old-fashioned showgirl glamour combined with the skill of adagio dancers, aerial pole artistry, comedy circus performers, quick change performers, illusionists and of course the French Cancan Dancers!
The 2 pm show on Saturday will be covered, while the two evening performances are topless.
Australian Marissa Burgess, the longest-serving performer in the Moulin Rouge's 120-year history, stars in the show.
The legendary showgirl became the toast of Paris and the subject of many French TV talk shows and a US documentary. Marissa will be joined by fellow Moulin Rouge star, Morgan Kenny, from the Sunshine Coast, together with showgirls, with dancers who have graced the stages of Moulin Rouge, The Lido and other French cabaret revues.
The show, featuring a cast of 18, will include more than a quarter of a million dollars’ worth of costumes crafted in traditional Parisian style, with more feathers, sequins, rhinestones and jewels than ever before.
Cabaret de Paris is choreographed by Todd Patrick, one of Australia’s dance leaders who began his career with Disney, before working for Versace, Dior, Issey Miyaki, Gucci and Chanel, across Europe and Asia. As a dancer he worked internationally, one of the highlights being the principal in The Lido in Paris.
Additionally, illusionist and Australia’s Got Talent finalist Michael Boyd will perform some of his greatest illusions, including a levitation illusion performed with Marissa whilst she is singing!
Cabaret De Paris, Playhouse, QPAC, Friday July 5 @ 7:30pm, Saturday July 6 @ 2pm and 7:30pm.
Tickets on Sale April 8 through qtix.com.au or 136 246
