The Glamonatrix burlesque 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 Christian Louboutin.
The Glamonatrix tour follows Von Teese’s The Art of the Teese which is the most successful burlesque tour of all time, playing to sold out theaters in cities across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. The Art of the Teese was a triumphant introduction of Dita’s full-length revue to Europe, with audiences clamoring to get tickets. This sensational tour sold out five nights at The London Palladium, graced the stages of opulent historic theaters, with even the Royals in attendance at the Opera Garnier in Monaco.
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 has raised burlesque to the rank of a chic, glamorous and popular art, she is the most Parisian of all the Americans. Watching her show I felt that she undresses just to be better dressed. It’s like fireworks of creativity and crystals- Jean Paul Gaultier
“With the success of my last tour of Europe, I came home more inspired than ever and got straight into building new acts. I am coming back with an even bigger show than I’ve ever toured with before. Being in these historic theaters 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,” says 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 modernizes the classic 1940’s variety show, with both male and female forms glorified in a body-positive way that inspires and uplifts.
Dita Von Teese's shows epitomize 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

The Bristol Hippodrome, the city’s very own West End theatre, opened its doors on 16 December 1912 when the curtain rose for the first time on what was generally agreed to be Oswald Stoll’s most magnificent provincial theatre.
It is a superb example of the grand architecture of the late Victorian era and is one of the masterpieces of design by Frank Matcham, the most eminent theatre architect of his time.
Towards the beginning of the century, the theatre staged a variety of acts as a Music Hall. Since then, and due to the fact that it has one of the largest theatre stages in Britain, The Bristol Hippodrome has established itself on the touring circuit for all major musical productions, thus becoming known as Bristol’s West End Theatre.
