Hells Belles Burlesque Presents: Whiskey Royale
You saunter into a dimly lit smoky room. A whiskey, straight up, appears in front of you, as if by magic. The stage lies dark, you sip your whiskey and wonder what lies just behind the curtain. You wait...
The curtain opens. A guitar wail cuts the anticipatory silence. The drums kick, and a silhouette appears, backlit on the stage. Suddenly you're draped with a boa, adorned with a glittery fedora, and all you can see under the brim of your newly acquired hat is legs, legs, legs!
You duck as a rhinestoned bra carelessly flies past you in a blur of sparkles. The rough rock and roll scent of leather envelopes you. You're so close you can feel the heat of the shimmy, the vibrations of the shake, and the the whip of hair flip. Welcome to the world of burlesque, Hells Belles Style...where all your Rock and Roll fantasies come true!
And don't worry, it's definitely okay to stare...
Show starts promptly at 9pm!
Take a break from the holiday scramble to enjoy some uplifting classical music by one of the greatest composers of all time.
Come for: Mozart as symphonist, Mozart as pianist, Mozart as opera composer – Wolfgang Amadeus in all his guises. Pure classical bliss!
And more: A rare chance to see one of the acclaimed leaders of the period-practice movement (and founder of The English Concert), British conductor Trevor Pinnock.
