I am one of those people who enjoys the experience of eating- the way everything you see, smell and taste combine to give a feeling of what can only be described as a little slice of heaven (haha, see what I did there). I’ve spent a large portion of my life searching for as many of these experiences as possible, which is why I am ecstatic to announce the return of the majestic and venerable Spiegel Tent Victoria to Cape Town.
Yup, Madame Zingara’s Theatre of Dreams is back home on 1 September 2011 and sticking around for the month. Durban, the tent’s current location, is seeing the close of the Love Magic Tour and Capetonians can look forward to the all-new Madame Zingara. What makes it even better is that this particular tour is a celebration of 10 Years of Dreams and promises to be a dinner cirque extravaganza like no other when Victoria opens her doors at Century City.
“In celebration of Madame Zingara’s 10-year anniversary we are planning the most incredible show yet. We’re bringing back some of the crowd favourites from South Africa and across the globe, all with fantastic new acts. It will be a show filled with warm, fond memories of the magical love affair audiences have enjoyed with Madame Zingara over the years,” said managing director Richard Griffin.
“We are very excited to be coming home to present what will be the most epic Theatre of Dreams dinner cirque experience yet. We are looking forward to welcoming many new friends to the tent and eager to reconnect with all old ones. It is their overwhelming support that has kept the Madame Zingara heart beating for a decade.”
Griffin said the company started with just one small restaurant in Loop Street, Cape Town, 10 years ago. “The Zingara family has grown to include The Theatre of Dreams as well as four more restaurants in Cape Town – Café Paradiso, Sidewalk Café, Café Mozart and Bombay Bicycle Club. Each has its own unique feel, but the consistent thread that runs through all our shops is truly delicious food and an ebullient service culture.”
The Madame Zingara’s Ten Years of Dreams show will open on 1 September at Century City. The box office is already open to take Cape Town reservations. Call 0861 623 263 or visit www.madamezingara.com
