Event Details

Comrades  and darlings of the cabaret ! You are cordially invited to indulge in a night of debaucherous and daring feature acts from singing aerial acrobatics to freak-show fetish burlesque married together with original live music by the Cirque Songstress.

The creme de la creme of Sydney's finest performers have been collected for you voyeurs to enjoy. 

Let the characters of Wonderfully Terrible Things tantalise and entertain you. Hold your breath and laugh out loud in an irreverent exploration of all those things you wish you got up to the night before... or maybe you did ? 

Created and Produced by Cirque Songstress, Christine Ibrahim, a seasoned lead vocalist and international feature act (Draculas, Torture Garden Japan, Primo Loco, Infamous, Wanted and Wild, Royal Heart Revue, Side Show Series HOTA, Circus Rio, Risque Revue) and original composer who has worked under the pseudonyms Mesuline Wilde and Alysia Rose, composing and performing since 2008.

Wonderfully Terrible Things began as an original EP (available on Spotify and iTunes) and grew into a show which debuted at The Vanguard in 2015. 

After 5 years of performing this show around Australia and Japan, the Cirque Songstress is bringing it back bigger than ever to where it all began, The Vanguard Newtown.
