After dazzling audiences across the seas, the glamorous Parisian revue show CABARET DE PARIS will return with its BIGGEST cast ever to make Brisbane sizzle during winter for three shows only 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 famous French Cancan Dancers! (please note: the 2pm show on Saturday will be covered, while the two evening performances are topless)
Australian born and trained Marissa Burgess, the longest-serving performer in the Moulin Rouge‘s 120-year history, stars in the show. The legendary showgirl, with a string of accolades to her name, became the toast of Paris and the subject of many French TV talk shows and a US documentary. Marissa will be joined by Sunshine Coast superstar, and fellow Moulin Rouge star, Morgan Kenny together with the crème de la crème of showgirls, with dancers who have graced the stages of Moulin Rouge, The Lido and other French cabaret revues also featuring in the 90-minute production.
The glittering show, featuring a cast of 18, will include over a quarter of a million dollars’ worth of lavish costumes crafted in traditional Parisian style, with more feathers, sequins, rhinestones and jewels than ever before (some covering barely anything)!!
Cabaret de Paris is choreographed by Todd Patrick, one of Australia’s dance leaders who began his formidable 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, acclaimed illusionist and Australia’s Got Talent finalist Michael Boyd will perform some of his greatest illusions, mind-boggling disappearances and magic including a sensational levitation illusion performed with Marissa whilst she is singing!
Cabaret De Paris has already played to sell-out crowds across Australia and internationally and promises to bring the elegance and glamour of Paris to Brisbane this winter.
