Dita Von Teese launches 'Glamonatrix' tour in NZ this December

The international "Queen of Burlesque" Dita Von Teese is set to visit New Zealand this December, bringing her dazzling 'Dita Von Teese: Glamonatrix' tour to Auckland's The Civic, Wellington's The Opera House and Christchurch's Isaac Theatre Royal. The tour promises to be an exhilarating spectacle. In fact, tickets for the first dates announced for Auckland and Wellington have already been sold out.

The 'Glamonatrix' revue takes audiences on a stunning visual journey with one show-stopping performance after another. The uber-glamorous variety show presents extravagant new production numbers from Dita and the cast—with costumes created by famed corset maker Mister Pearl, British designer Jenny Packham, French couturier Alexis Mabille, burlesque icon Catherine D'Lish, Brooke Brothers and more. Shoe aficionados will delight in the extraordinary bespoke footwear by acclaimed fashion designer, Christian Louboutin. The tour follows Dita's most successful burlesque revue 'The Art of the Teese'—playing to sold out theatres in cities across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. This sensational tour packed out The London Palladium and graced famed stages of opulent historic theatres.

"With a fan club that includes Marc Jacobs, Elton John, and Christian Louboutin, Dita Von Teese is giving burlesque a sweetly seductive second life, and more than a touch of class." - Vanity Fair

"Dita Von Teese is the undisputed Queen of Burlesque. Her shows epitomise glamour, beauty, and elegance. The colors, the panache, the otherworldly visual of her performance is unparalleled! She is a global phenomenon, the ultimate in style entertainment! I loved it!" - Philip Treacy

This year's 'Glamonatrix' tour claims to be nothing short of alluring as Dita (smothered in Swarovski crystal) reinvents the classic burlesque "surprise cake" routine with a massive bejeweled cake, freshly served with a delightful whimsicality. For her jaw-dropping 'Lipteese' number, Dita evokes a John Willie retro-fetish dream, riding her giant sparkling lipstick to energetic remixes from her 2018's 'Dita Von Teese Remix' album. In another new act, this raven-tressed 'Glamonatrix' will titillate as a big cat tamer in an erotic twist on vintage circus chic—wielding a crystallized whip while wearing a sparkling Hussar style suit (decorated with well-earned jeweled medals for excellence in striptease, of course!). Fans can also look forward to a thrilling update of her famous martini glass performed with an ensemble cast. Two of the most revered performers in burlesque will join Dita as her special guests—acclaimed pin-up model and dance teacher, Dirty Martini, and award-winning cabaret sensation, Zelia Rose.

"...I am coming back with an even bigger show than I've ever toured with before. Being in these historic theatres with audiences coming dressed to the nines, creates this incredible atmosphere unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own power and confidence, embracing sensuality and encouraging others to do the same in their own lives. Glamour is the art of creating mystery and allure, and the new 'Glamonatrix' show embraces all of these qualities." - Dita Von Teese

The 'Glamonatrix' show is a full evening of comedy and sophisticated striptease that celebrates diverse beauty. Far from being a typical burlesque show, Dita elevates and modernises the classic 1940's variety show, with both male and female forms glorified in a body-positive way that inspires and uplifts. Always ahead of the curve, Dita's casting has consistently been inclusive, diverse, and multi-faceted, showcasing the talents of male, female, and gender-fluid performers from around the world to create a celebratory show like no other.

Renowned for her ornate sets and fabulous haute-couture performances, Dita Von Teese is one glamorous act you don't want to miss!
