Speigelesque joins Rockhampton River Festival

Published on 08 June 2017


Rockhampton River Festival is proud to announce the sensational, stimulating and sumptuous Spiegelesque as part of the 2017 Rockhampton River Festival.

Spiegelesque allows you to step into the majestic world of cabaret, Comedy, Circus and burlesque and will be part of the line-up at the Rockhampton River Festival 14 to the 16 July 2017.

SPIEGELESQUE is a delightfully decadent theatrical experience that takes place in one of the most beautiful and oldest remaining Speigel-tents in the world.

The Spiegel Zelt is an original 97 year old fully transportable Spiegel Tent, which was brought over from Belgium in December 2014, with the intention of touring across Australia. She is one of the oldest original Spiegel tents still operational around the world.

Rockhampton Region Mayor, Margaret Strelow is excited that Spiegelesque is the headline act of the Rockhampton River Festival this year.

 “This is an absolutely amazing experience, and the fact that you can experience this level of performance at Rockhampton River Festival certainly sets the standard of what we can expect across the whole event,” said Mayor Strelow

“There are a number of different shows throughout the whole festival; all held in this this unique and legendary art nouveau “Tent of Mirrors” which is the ultimate cabaret venue.

“To add to this, Spiegelesque will remain in the region for the week following the festival, and will have a myriad of different performances for everyone to attend.”
