Spiegelworld began creating its immersive live entertainment experiences in New York City in 2006. At the core of this seductive world was a unique venue – a century-old Belgian spiegeltent beautifully crafted from teak, stained glass, mirrors, and luxurious velvet.

Surrounding this wondrous travelling ‘mirror tent’ from a bygone era, we invited our audiences into an eclectic playground to party in before and after the show including a raucous beer garden, speak-easy bars, secret VIP nooks and a labyrinth of curiosities.

“It is the spectator and not life that art really mirrors.”
– Oscar Wilde

The tiny circular stage at the center of the intimate spiegeltent has informed the creation of all of our ground-breaking live shows which reinvent circus, comedy, cabaret, vaudeville and burlesque for a 21st century audience.

While our roots are in New York City and our shows have toured to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Canada, Edinburgh and across the USA, Spiegelworld has become an entertainment force in Las Vegas.

Absinthe premiered in 2006 with Spiegelworld becoming a summer institution for the next three years at the end of the pier by Brooklyn Bridge. Transferring to our tent at Caesars Palace in 2011, Absinthe continues to play two shows every single night of the year and was recently described by Las Vegas Weekly as “the #1 greatest show in Las Vegas history.”

We opened our new space-themed show Opium at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in March 2018, pushing the comedy variety show format to the far edges of the known universe.

Believing that entertainment should excite all of the senses, Spiegelworld developed and presented its own unique food truck experience, Ghost & Grits at Smorgasburg in New York City during the summer of 2017.

Spiegelworld creates experiences where the performances are extraordinary, anything can happen and the show is just the start of the revelry. Come into our world!
