Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome
The Triple Door's Summer of Riesling Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome show will take the audience on a wine-soaked adventure through two eras. The first, a harvest celebration that calls forth the God of Wine himself in the time of the Roman Empire, and the second, the story of an intrepid reporter determined to photograph a reclusive diva in Rome during the swingin' Sixties.
Inspired by the great costume epics, Quo Vadis and Satvricon, as well as mid-century visions of Rome, this show mixes classical and jazz music with the traditional music of ancient Rome and Italian go-go rock. Costumed by the illustrious music of Daniel Hellman, arcane priestesses, paparazzi, Vespa-girls, fire dancers, and fashionistas all take their turn in the spotlight. This "party through time" mixes belly dance, go-go, and ballet with comedy, song, striptease, and glamour for an orgy that lasts 2,000 years!
Featuring burlesque superstars Lily Verlaine, Inga Ingenue, The Luminous Pariah, Paris Original, Trojan Original, and Jasper McCann, with rising starlets Laurel Bordeaux, Tory Tiara, Holly Pop, Persephone Illyri, and the fusion belly-dance trio Tribella, the show will leave you punch-drunk in delight! Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome is the intoxicating theatrical burlesque mélange that you've come to expect from Verliane, McCann, and company.
