The Magician’s Cabaret, hugely popular for its unique setting and dreamy ambience, has remerged post-lockdown with these three breathtaking dinner and show spectaculars to add a bit of pizzazz to your week.

There’s no other show in Sydney quite like The Underground Burlesque Experience. Find out more below and read on for tickets to La Belle Rose and A Tribute to the Women of Soul—an evening of powerful live music by Sydney songstresses.

1. The Underground Burlesque Experience

Packed with equal parts humour and glamour, as well as poise and delicacy, The Underground Burlesque Experience is a three-hour and six-sizzling act burlesque extravaganza complete with secret tunnel entry and complimentary aphrodisiac at The Magician’s Cabaret.

From Gypsy Rose to Kitty Bang Bang and Violent Passion as well as a tribute to the one-and-only Dita Von Teese with a dancing in martini glass number, you’ll be charmed and enchanted by the cast of stars.

The Underground Burlesque Experience at The Magician’s Cabaret takes place on Fridays from 7pm.

Add a touch of seduction to your night with The Underground Burlesque Experience.

2. La Belle Rose

Dancers take over and perform the ever-popular le Can-can and the Folie Bergere including a number of other famous acts before the intermission and your crème brûlée dessert is served. Then, a tribute to French magician Robert Houdin graces the stage and the stirring music of Edith Piaf adds to the vintage Paris feel of the evening.

Just as Picasso proclaimed, At last I have come into a dreamland, so you will as well when the final act featuring the famous Parisian showgirls entertains and enthralls until the final curtain comes down at around 10pm.

With three hours of unadulterated fun, La Belle Rose Cabaret is a night to remember.

3. A Tribute to the Women of Soul

From Etta James to Lauryn Hill, from Nina Simone to Jill Scott and then groups like TLC who gifted us the classic No Scrubs, we are left in awe every time we hear their music.

It resonates and uplifts. We can never get enough of it, which is why The Magician’s Cabaret’s Tribute to Women of Soul is a night of live music you must experience.

You will feel the power embedded in the songs of some of music’s most iconic women. Performances take place select Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 7:30pm.

Add a glass of wine and dinner to your soul experience for a complete night out.

Feel the power of soul for 90 minutes with this tribute to these great women. 

Pro Tip at The Magician’s Cabaret

Give yourself enough time before and after each show to take in the full aura of The Magician’s Cabaret. And in the case that you don’t want the fun to end, you can head over to the charming underground bar—Top Hat Bar—for delicious wines and classic cocktails.

Please note that there is a minimum purchase of two tickets for La Belle Rose. Pick a friend or someone you fancy and see if either night can work its magic.
