Burlesco Divino

5 Oct

I had the opportunity of seeing Burlesco Divino at the Triple Door. It was quite a spectacle with a little something for everyone. The show takes place in Rome in 1963. It is about an American writer and her Italian friend who must meet a deadline of putting together an extravagant show for Rome.

Through their journey of finding the best costumes and dancers in Rome, we see many different performances. They take us to a high-end designer store, where we get to see some ballroom dancing. We are also taken to see a 60’s inspired performance with a trio performing to the beat of go-go rock while riding and dancing on their motor cars.


The writer and her friend get side tracked a couple of times, where we find ourselves laughing at some of their escapades. One that comes to mind is where the American writer is caught up with several half-naked people dancing among themselves with cigarettes and bottles of wine in hand. The Italian friend then reminds the American writer of the task at hand and they go along their way.

There were some great burlesque performances as well but one in particular that deserves a mention was when the dancer teased us by playfully splashing and dancing inside a large martini glass. I have never seen any burlesque performance like this one.

The finale performance was one with belly dancing, Egyptian music, fire juggling, ballet and jazz, and much more. The choreography was amazing. There was so many different kinds of dances with different styles and music. I love to watch a good dance show and this one did not disappoint.
