Tasmanian International Arts Festival
Only 9 days left to get your Spiegeltent on!

The Spiegeltent has been a hub of arts activity on Hobart’s waterfront with audiences coming out rain, hail and shine for stand-out performances and to bask in the cozy ambience of the Outdoor Lounge. We only have 10 more days of Spiegeltent splendor to share with you! So come and enjoy the comedy, cabaret, music, circus and burlesque performances, as well as family friendly fun, while you still can. Make sure you go to the Ten Days website to get your tickets – they’re selling super fast.


It’s your turn Launceston – we’re taking the Spiegel shows on the road this weekend ONLY!

Launceston culture vultures! For 3 days only is your chance to see some of the finest shows from the Spiegeltent up close and intimate at the Festival Club at the Earl. See the Earl Arts Centre transformed into Sue Henderson’s Plato's Cave at the Earl – exhibition by day, Festival Club Bar by night.

Gracing Launceston tonight is the magnificent Le Gateau Chocolat who is bringing his stunning solo performance I ♥ Chocolat to the Earl Arts Centre for one night only! Voted by Time Out London as one of its Top 10 Cabaret Stars, Le Gateau Chocolat, is a one-man musical phenomenon, complete with larger-than-life vocal talent all wrapped up in dazzling sequinned lycra. We love him and you will too.

A new ensemble of three friends and two lovers have come together to create a jazz journey of rarely-performed songs that are close to your heart. Showcasing the soaring vocals of Maria Lurighi, the sublime violin of Peter Tanfield and internationally-acclaimed jazz pianist Matt Boden, these three maestros share their musical offerings in a special concert tonight.

Don’t miss Colin Lane, the much loved ‘Lano’ from the comedy duo Lano & Woodley. Colin’s going to do some showing off again, with a microphone and a piano. It’s funny. He’s ready to make you laugh until you cry at the Earl Arts Centre from tomorrow night.

On Saturday night, join Yana Alana feather ruffler, rabble rouser and cabaret provocateur, for a bent night of blues, burlesque and blame at the Festival Club at the Earl. Winner of the 2014 Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Between the Cracks is cabaret at its very best.

Kaput, features the larger-than-life buffoonery of Tom Flanagan in two brilliant family shows this weekend that are full of slapstick, acrobatics and total silliness. Be swept up in the mayhem as one man’s life is flipped upside-down in these highly skilled, hilariously funny and touching performances.

After a sell-out performance and thunderous applause at Hobart’s Spiegeltent, it’s your turn Launceston to experience Tasmania’s amazing Queen of Cabaret on Sunday night! In this musical tour de force, Claire Dawson, West End regular and star of the hit show Blitz!, plays instruments and sings up a storm of old and new songs as her most popular character, the chronically conflicted SiSi.



Step right up for the sizzling La Soirée

Festival darlings La Soirée are back and thrilling audiences with astonishing acrobats, mind-bending feats and daring chanteuses. La Soirée was the hottest ticket 2014, so don’t miss your chance to experience this unforgettably naughty and hilarious evening of high glamour and low inhibition entertainment.



The laughs are on us!

We’re bringing big time comedy to the Spiegeltent with two of the nation’s top comedians who will have you in stitches. Don’t miss the lovable Colin Lane, from Lano & Woodley, tonight in his hilarious solo act.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s biggest selling comedian, Jason Byrne, is coming to Hobart and he wants you to name his show. Jason’s inspired, original brand of high-energy lunacy ensures that there is no other comedian like him, and his sell out shows have attracted numerous accolades and extensive television and radio credits. Jason will be making an exclusive appearance at the Speigeltent from 23 – 25 March. Tickets selling fast!



The TSO get electric and extreme

From the TSO Chorus comes this bold group of 24 choristers who are ready to push the boundaries of choral performance. For this special Spiegeltent show they are coupling two unlikely bedfellows: chorus and electric guitar. Chorus Director June Tyzack has partnered her ensemble with Baroque specialist, soprano, Helen Thomson and guitar virtuoso Zane Banks for an invigorating and unexpected program. It’s choral, it’s Electric and Extreme!



Local and live music takes centre stage at the Spiegeltent

Representing our local music scene is Tassie’s very own ASTA, Triple J Unearthed High 2012 winner, with her infectious electro-pop. Rockabilly rebels The Sin & Tonics have a reputation for their high intensity live shows that combine country punk rock, along with heavy rockabilly swing and surf guitar sensibilities, that will inspire the little devil in us all to come out and play.

Don’t miss out on these amazing shows. BOOK NOW!
