Sydney Festival - The Famous Spiegeltent - exterior

The most beautiful of the last remaining Belgian Spiegeltents, The Famous Spiegeltent, was built in 1920 by master craftsmen Oscar Mols Dom and Loius Goor. This Grande Dame has spent her lifetime at the bequest of festivals and fairgrounds throughout Europe and beyond, playing host to the world's greatest cabaret artists, musicians and circus burlesque performers.

My daughter was the stage manager for a few years in the famous spiegeltent, traveling between the Melbourne comedy festival to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and many other places. She's now production manager at the Sydney Opera House. Great tent venue
