Christmas in July at Slide – a unique theatrical experience

Lost In Love
Emma Lian Goh and Steven Watson in Lost In Love

Sydney’s Slide on Oxford Street is one heck of a venue, not least because they can boast ownership of a famous circus cabaret extravaganza – the wonderful El’Circo.

For over four years El’Circo has taken Australia by storm, presenting an incomparable theatrical experience every week with a blend of cabaret, burlesque, magic and acrobatics – and it’s all paired with a tantalising feast designed by Slide’s head chef, Aymeric Saint-Lannes.

Next month it’s Christmas in July at Slide, and El’Circo is bringing a brand new show, created by Marc Kuzma, to rescue you from the winter blues.

A thrilling Russian winter fairytale, El’Circo Blanc is happening every Wednesday night in July. It features incredible aerial acts, illusion and soaring vocal prowess. And also a 5 course degustation.

El’Circo Blanc features choreography by James Taylor and stars Emma Lian Goh and Steven Watson (Belle Air, as seen on Australia’s Got Talent), Duncan Brown (El’Circo Rouge), Catherine Alcorn (The Divine Miss Bette), and Timothy Woon (Master Illusionist).
