Sydney Opera House today announced a two week extension for LA SOIRÉE. The hit show will now run until Sunday 26 February in The Studio at Sydney Opera House. Outrageous, sexy and hilarious, LA SOIRÉE is an ever-changing feast of cabaret, new burlesque, circus sideshow and contemporary vaudeville acts.
From the famously sexy David O’Mer aka Bath Boy, to the delightfully devilish English Gents and the lovable and bendy Captain Frodo; audiences will discover (or re-discover) the passion, heart, unforgettable style and good old-fashioned showmanship that made these artists the stars of the Olivier Award-winning La Clique.
Also dropping in along the way, Ursula Martinez with her eye-popping magic trick, Mario Queen of the Circus and more!
Making his Sydney debut, the London-based Lyrca-clad baritone, Le Gateau Chocolat will perform his frocktastic take on everything from pop-rock to opera. Throughout the season, special guest stars and surprise appearances will light up the season each night.
The core troupe of LA SOIRÉE first performed together in The Famous Spiegeltent in Edinburgh in 2004. Ever since, this madcap family of extraordinary entertainers have performed their timeless and charming show worldwide, conquering everything in their path and selling out almost every season.
LA SOIRÉE is part of Sydney Opera House 2012 Summer at the House.
Until 26 February - Tickets from $65*
