Old fashioned Burlesque is enjoying a rebirth thanks to the extremely fetching and steamily enticing Hot Box Girls. This classically tantalizing Burlesque production pulls out all the stops. Featuring operatically trained singers performing, at first, in stunning period piece costumes, the repertoire may seem a bit unusual for Burlesque.
Singing superbly such things as Ah! Je veux vivre from Romeo and Juliet, and Il mio rigor dimentica from L’Elisir d’Amore, Dixie, Trixie, and Ladybird sing their hearts out while gorgeous aerialists twirl above.
This is a new generation of burlesque starlets and opera divas. They sing, dance, and tease their way onto the stage and into your hearts. With varying backgrounds from trained opera singers, dancers and musical theatre performers, to Cabaret artists – these are talented women who take you on a titillating journey reminiscent of the Ziegfeld Follies and Minsky’s Burlesque.
L’Opera Burlesque incorporates operatic beauty, parody, cabaret, aerial arts, costuming, and beautiful women, creating an alluring tapestry that one can only call the Classy Side of Burlesque
"...An all-singing, all-dancing TONY-approved institution ..."
