Date night at Madame Zingara

Image (18)
The Hubby got me GOLDEN CIRCLE tickets to Madame Zingara The Queen of Flanders show for Christmas.

In celebration of our fifteeth year of magic, Madame Zingara presents the Celebration, our biggest production yet. Thirty five electrifying artists from around the world unite to push the boundaries of dinner cirque theatre, housed in the world’s largest mirror tent, the magnificent “Queen of Flanders.” This is Madame Zingara like you’ve never seen before!

We had the best time. It was, by far, the best date night we have ever had and one of the high lights of my life. I kid you not.

When we arrived, we were greeted at the door by one of the characters dressed in the top part of a tuxedo, suspenders and fishnet stockings with the highest stilettos I’ve ever seen a man wear. We were served canapes and champaign by shirtless man candy. Ooo lah lah. The Hubby and I strolled around the entrance a little and discovered a store full of fun dress up goodies (some X rated *blush*) and settled on feather boas (which we got for the girls), a hat each (We bought a bolero for Koko) and a fan. MAN was it hot!

Before they let us into the Mirror Tent, we were introduced to our servers for the night. They were all dressed as Penguins to start off with. I was amazing to see during the show that even the servers had costume changes. Four changes in all!

Once we were seated, right in front of the stage, and drinks had been ordered, the show started. It was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! The areal acrobatics took my breath away and the singers were fantastic.

They even had me up on stage dancing! ME!!!! I cannot rave enough about the experience. They have the most amazing face painters on site to add a little extra fun to your night. I opted for a “small” eye art.

If there is nothing else you do this month, I highly recommend you go watch this show! The last show is on January 30th at Monte Casino in Johannesburg! Its a MUST SEE!

We were served a 3 course meal during the course of the show. The food was spectacular. We will definitely be going to another show next year, if they come back to Johannesburg! I’m all giddy with excitement just writing about it!

Much love…
