Audiences have raised their glasses and Santèd to a soirée of charming vintage glamour, incredible acts and a dazzling production that illuminated St Kilda’s Map 57 Winter Garden last month.

Blanc de Blanc was an entertaining, seductive, funny and fascinating cabaret and acrobatic spectacle as Monsieur Romeo and a cast of multi-talented performers delivered a captivating homage to the indulgence and enjoyment of champagne.

Strut & Fret was the award winning creative company behind the stunning production, which was showcased at the antique Spiegeltent in Melbourne’s new winter bayside outdoor festival precinct.

Romeo’s suave and debonair stage presence had people giggling, Masha’s aerial hotel luggage cart performance left heads spinning and Spencer’s amusing comedy act of mime and contortion set Blanc de Blanc apart from other shows.

A combination of great music, outstanding big performances by the entire cast and more than a few surprises that include a show-stopping, highly seductive aerial act by Milena and her partner Hampus, had the show rated 18+.

Yes, be warned that despite a highly physical and athletic yoga form of contemporary dance by Shun that’s sure to leave the audience breathless, and a bubbly-balloon-popping-dance act, this show was not for kids.

An array of naughty and sexual references with frequent nudity that encompasses glittered nipples and bathtub shenanigans leaves the performance to one’s imagination.

Nobody in the audience was safe as there was a low level of participation. If you were lucky enough to be picked from the crowd for a cheeky lesson on how to open a champagne bottle or be put on stage to be surrounded by a flurry of glitter and sequined dancers, one had to anticipate surrendering to this hilarious event.

Blanc de Blanc was naughty, entertaining, wild, loud and extremely funny.

Extremely funny.
