BRIGHT NOTES, RICH TEXTURES, A LOT OF BODY AND AN UNEXPECTED FINISH
Prepare to have your cork popped, Auckland. With the arrival of the Auckland Arts Festival in March comes the return of the beloved Spigeltent in Aotea Square, in which Strut and Fret Production House’s “champagne cabaret” BLANC de BLANC will be the resident show.
A place where the bubbles fizz, eyes glimmer and the salacious and delicious combine, BLANC de BLANC is another circus-cabaret gem by the creators of LIMBO and Cantina; a wild, shimmering night of unparalleled pleasure in which delighted audiences will experience breathtaking acrobatics, swinging tunes, a lot of bare skin and more than a few surprises.
A blend of vintage glamour, high-end spectacle and acts to infatuate and illuminate, BLANC de BLANC premiered at the Sydney Opera House in 2016 and has gone on to titillate audiences around the world.
BLANC de BLANC will have its first ever New Zealand season from March 7-24, running the duration of the Auckland Arts Festival.
An opulent and sumptuous evening of lavish laughs, heightened sensations and fantastical fun, BLANC de BLANC is strictly for people aged 18+. Slip into something more comfortable, grab a glass and join the party event of Summer at the world famous Spiegeltent.
