Burlesque queen Dita Von Teese announces Dublin date

The ever-dazzling International Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese, has announced a Dublin date with the most lavish touring burlesque show in history, Glamonatrix.

The burlesque revue takes audiences on a stunning visual journey with one show-stopping performance after another. The tour boasts no less than four spectacular all-new acts for Dita, each one more lavish than the last. Smothered in Swarovski crystal, she reinvents the classic burlesque 'surprise cake' routine with a massive bejewelled cake and that jaw-dropping 'Lipteese' number.

Far from being a typical burlesque show, Glamonatrix is a full evening of comedy and sophisticated striptease that celebrates diverse beauty. Dita elevates and modernizes the classic 1940’s variety show, with both male and female forms glorified in a body-positive way that inspires and uplifts.

Speaking about the tour, Von Teese said: "I feel so fortunate that burlesque has come to symbolize a celebration of beauty and sensuality in many forms, a place where unlikely icons take the stage and inspire others.

I’m proud to be a part of the modern burlesque movement and I’m grateful to have the chance to tour with performers that change people’s minds about striptease

The Glamonatrix tour follows Von Teese’s The Art of the Teese which is the most successful burlesque tour of all time, playing to sold-out theaters in cities across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.

She plays Dublin's Olympia Theatre⁣⁣⁣⁣ May 2.
