This is the final week of Sydney’s Biggest Little Cabaret Festival, with a brand new round of performances. The winners will go on to perform in the Gala Final to be held at 7pm on Sunday 7th February at the inner city venue Slide Lounge located at 41 Oxford Street.

Week 4 saw a great assortment of talent on stage. Emcee was the witty Cruello De Vil. In under 95 minutes, six superb ten minute performances were presented, with it being very difficult to pick the performance that will go through.

There was a good array of cabaret styles on display including female burlesque, cover songs, and songs with new comic lyrics.

1. DIRTY MARTINI

This starred Miss Bellissima who first appeared wearing a beautiful black mirror-sequined gown, delivered a classic burlesque routine that showed her flexibility as slowly layer upon layer of clothing was peeled away from her slender body. Performed to Shirley Bassey singing Diamonds Are Forever from The Remix Album. Next she swam and danced on top of a gigantic martini glass, followed by opening a bottle of champagne, gently poured all over her body. A dripping wet crowd pleaser.                         Continue reading SHORT AND SWEET CABARET 2016 WEEK 4 @ NEW THEATRE
