After a sold out 2019 National Tour, a sold out encore Valentine's season in Brisbane earlier this year, an award winning debut at Adelaide Fringe, and after debuting a brand new version of the show at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne, MATADOR proudly comes back to it's Brisbane home; THE TIVOLI!
Featuring a brand new stage set, new original music and some explosive new latin acts, this will be a fresh, new version of the show that audiences have fallen in love with... elevated in every way. Including our new seating plan. Audiences can now pick allocated theatre seats in either Platinum, Gold or Silver reserves. We are also introducing the tantalizing new Flirts Section: A saucy, immersive area closest to all the action on and off the stage, with VIP tables and table service and your very own, cast poster art!
Inspired by a tale as old as time, MATADOR is a fiery fusion of burlesque, dance and jaw-dropping circus acts. Set across a fiery Spanish sunset, this is a thematic tale of forbidden love, carnal desires, passion and pain, a tale of a love torn bull & the seductive Matador!The show takes us on an emotionally charged journey through love and it’s many faces; from the first moments you lay your eyes on that someone special, the butterflies, the flirting and sometimes, the doubt.A journey of self-discovery, identity and sexuality, of lust, sex and passion.
The show also explores the trials and tribulations of love, from the pain of unrequited love to the effects of infidelity on a relationship. MATADOR is a celebration of love, friendship and the bonds that hold us together. Comprising a colourful cast of 14 incredible performers, MATADOR features non-stop entertainment from start to finish. High energy commercial dance pieces, beautiful, touching contemporary and ballet acts as well as steamy Latin numbers intertwine with saucy burlesque acts, pole dancing and hair raising aerial and circus acts.
