Bernie Dieter's Club Kabarett

Come for the no-holds-barred kabarett and stay for the astonishing circus, gender-bending aerial and fire-breathing sideshow.

The spirit of cabaret is alive and well with one of the world's most celebrated chanteuses lighting up The Rocks with her particular mix of debauchery, dark humour and biting social commentary throughout August and September.

German kabarett superstar Bernie Dieter — described as 'an electrifying cross between Lady Gaga, Marlene Dietrich and Frank-N-Futer in sequins' — will bring her Weimar punk jazz band and her troupe of bombastic bohemians back to Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent for another run of Sydney shows following a blockbuster season earlier in 2022.

The show encapsulates the spirit of the notorious kabarett clubs of Weimar Germany, and features a vibrant lineup of international talent. The billing includes sword swallowing-sensation Lucky Hell, gender-bending aerialists Reed Kelly and Jack Dawson and comedy burlesque star Sugar Du Joure. The colourful show celebrates freedom and diversity in all its forms — Dieter herself describes it as "the ultimate party at the end of the world, where my family of misfits and I stick a defiant middle finger up at the past two years".

Just as spectacular as the performance is its iconic — and all too appropriate — setting. Bernie Dieter's Club Kabarett will take place in Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent at Runaway Gardens in First Fleet Park. The venue is one of the country's largest and most spectacular spiegeltents and an ideal setting for such a spellbinding cabaret show.
