The Studio at Sydney Opera House will be transformed into a glorious salon when LA SOIRÉE takes over from 6 January. 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, outrageous female sword swallower, Miss Behave and Mario Queen of the Circus.
Forget what you think you know about hula hooping; the beautiful Yulia Pykhtina has something to show you. 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 premiered in October 2010 with a five-month season at London’s exquisite South Bank Big Top and after an extensive European tour, will return to London for another Christmas season at the iconic Roundhouse in Camden before heading to Sydney for the Summer.
LA SOIRÉE is part of Sydney Opera House 2012 Summer at the House.
From 6 January -12 February - Tickets from $65*
