The Exotic Lives of Lola Montez


From award winning creators of the smash-hit national touring legend Caravan Burlesque, the internationally adored Glory Box and the haunting drama The Flood, comes a brand new drama decked in couture black lace, a thousand true lies, jaw-dropping dance, multi-award winning storytelling, sultry song and a death scene or three.

In 1855 the wildest showgirl of the nineteenth century, Lola Montez toured Australia & its goldfields.

The scandal is legend!

She horsewhipped the editor of the Ballarat Times (for a bad review).

Swung down mineshafts on a single rope with champagne in hand.

Escaped arrest dressed only in her jewels.

Showered with gold nuggets and insults. Swathed in scandal.

Her erotic Spider Dance was “the most libertinish and indelicate performance that could be given on the public stage” (Sydney Morning Herald 1855).

Starring triple Best Actress Winner (and direct descendant of Lola herself!) Miss Caroline Lee and Parisian dance siren Holly Durant.

Directed by the international Queen of Provocative Variety Moira Finucane, Lola is a wildly contemporary dreamscape steeped in Australian history and the extraordinary lives & freedom of one of the world’s most adventurous women.

Written by Jackie Smith a Patrick White Playwright Award Winner and world famous cabaret stars Finucane & Smith.

Created in partnership with Her Majesty’s Ballarat
