Since EMPIRE by Spiegelworld opened in Australia in January this year, it has been seen by over 130,000 people around the country with rave reviews, sold out performances and standing ovations. Spiegelworld is delighted to announce that EMPIRE will return to the rooftop of Crown in Melbourne under the beautiful spiegeltent from March 11 2014. Tickets will go on sale at 2pm this Tuesday September 17 at www.ticketek.com.au.
The return Melbourne season of EMPIRE follows spectacular engagements in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide that left audiences amazed and breathless. The Brisbane Times said “the athleticism and audacity of Empire’s performers are a marvel. It’s now one of my picks for show of the year”. The West Australian described the show as “a thrilling, agile, contemporary circus, immaculately staged and precariously gripping for every one of its 90 minutes”. When Empire opened in Sydney, the Sun Herald awarded the show a rare“10/10”; while The Sydney Morning Herald described it as “the best show I’ve seen in years”.
Presented in Spiegelworld’s 700-seat antique spiegeltent, EMPIRE smashes the boundaries of circus, cabaret, vaudeville and burlesque, reinventing the genres for a 21st century audience. Featuring the sexiest, most daring artists from across the globe, the show had its world premiere season in New York City during the summer of 2012, where it was the first tented show ever seen in Times Square.
