Get Directions

Hand built in 1920 as the ultimate cabaret and music salon, This ‘Grande Dame’ has spent her lifetime in festivals throughout Europe and beyond. Since Marlene Dietrich first sang on The Famous Spiegeltent stage its magic mirrors have reflected images of some the world’s greatest artists and their adoring public. The Famous Spiegeltent was built in 1920 and is the largest and most beautiful of the original antique Flemish Spiegel (mirror) tents. The grande old dame was the first spiegeltent to visit Australia and appeared at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2000 where she established The Garden of Unearthly Delights. This initial visit began a long love affair with Australia and her regular summer sojourns to the Southern Hemisphere have included the creation of the first Spiegel Gardens and becoming a mainstay of The Melbourne International Festival and the Sydney Festival for over a decade. She has appeared in seasons in Canberra, Perth, Bondi, Adelaide, Auckland, Tauranga, Taranaki, Hawkes Bay and has inspired the use of these magical venues at festivals and events all over the world. The Famous Spiegeltent is the home of cabaret and musical adventure and she is absolutely delighted to return to Sydney and to establish herself at yet another iconic location.
