An immersive cabaret packed with French intrigue is coming to Sydney

L’Hôtel, the immersive theatrical experience featuring performers from cabaret, burlesque, aerial and circus, will have its Sydney premiere season in the Opera House’s Studio from 12 October to 13 November 2022.

Making its world premiere with a sold-out season at Adelaide Cabaret Festival in 2021, L’Hôtel reinvents the classic dinner theatre experience, immersing its audience in a world of French intrigue as they dine amongst the action.

In the hotel lobby, audiences meet the captivating characters who call L’Hôtel home and follow them behind closed doors for jaw-dropping performances.

Throughout the show, G.H. Mumm champagne and a selection of fine French food is deftly delivered by LHôtel’s wait staff ensemble.

Directed by Craig Ilott, L’Hôtel draws on his career of multi-award-winning productions including the tantalising Smoke & Mirrors, which won three Helpmann Awards including Best New Australian Work.

“L’Hôtel takes variety performance to the next level with this immersive, provocative production that invites audiences to delve deeper into the world of cabaret, burlesque and circus,” Sydney Opera House’s head of contemporary performance, Ebony Bott, said.

“France has long been the epicentre of food, love, art and aesthetic sophistication and L’Hôtel melds these elements in a spectacular night out with delectable French fare and world-class performance.

“Over the last decade, more than 220,000 people have enjoyed cabaret at the Opera House, and we’re thrilled to see the art form return with this new exhilarating experience.”
