The jaw-dropping, Olivier Award-winning cabaret sensation returns to London for its seventh season in the capital this Christmas, from 11 November 2016 until 8 January 2017.
This season of La Soirée will offer audiences a bounty of familiar pleasures and surprises, including much loved favourites Ursula Martinez, The English Gents, and Hamish McCann’s pole act, last year’s show-stopper Denis Lock’s bubble act, plus a host of fresh new talent. So shimmy on over to the vintage Spiegeltent in its new home in Leicester Square, a velvet-draped salon of carved wood, polished mirrors, crystal and leadlight and prepare to be charmed, astonished and electrified by the loveable crème de la crème of the cabaret world.
Having drawn gasps and giggles for 20 years with her signature disappearing hanky trick, burlesque queen and homegrown London talent Ursula Martinez will be hanging up her infamous red hanky for good next January. One of the founding members of the La Soirée company, Ursula Martinez is widely considered one of the early pioneers of the international cabaret scene. This season of La Soirée will be the last chance for audiences to see the act that has become Ursula’s calling card.
La Soirée has now seen over 75 artists take their place on the iconic red stage in over 25 cities, across five continents, with over 150 acts between them. Over 5.5 million people have now seen La Soirée perform across the globe.
