Tickets for shows in the Jubilee Theater through April 2024 are on sale now at ticketmaster.com/DitaVegas
This past weekend, the International Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese, celebrated the grand opening of her premiere residency, DITA LAS VEGAS: A Jubilant Revue, in the Jubilee Theater at Horseshoe Las Vegas.
A lifelong aficionado of the iconic Las Vegas show Jubilee—the last remaining showgirl production of its kind that ran at Bally’s Las Vegas from 1981 through 2016—Dita’s new show merges her signature burlesque acts with the celebrated Jubilee aesthetic, including incorporating some of the show’s original costumes and sets.
In this only-in-Vegas spectacular, Dita, who is joined on stage by two dozen dancers and two guest performers, tips her hat to the spectacular spirit of Jubilee of yore and the historic theater at Horseshoe, while incorporating her most iconic acts. The 75-minute nonstop show features a thrilling opening number with Dita descending from five stories above on a floating disc, kicking off a joyful vintage Las Vegas showgirl tribute in stunning orange and pink feathers and Swarovski crystals.
You’ll know you’ve hit the glamour jackpot as the show continues with a gilded Venus shell showcasing a Sally Rand-style Bubble Dance, an act created by Dita and performed by featured performer Ferly Prado.

There are blindingly sparkly carousel horses, a ballerina emerging from a giant powder compact, a seven-foot-tall bejeweled “pop-out” cake, an enormous glittery lipstick, and a glittering birdcage with water feature.
An erotically-charged circus in vibrant pastels is sure to astonish as Dita leads, riding high atop a gleaming circus wagon pulled by glitzy male show ponies and Dita’s glamorous pointe-dancing tiger showgirls and showboys.
Rhinestones and feathers aside, the show also includes a sensual video projection mapping striptease act, originally created by Ali Mahdavi for Dita at The Crazy Horse Paris, the first-ever act of its kind.
There’s also a Swarovski-studded Western scene, with Dita riding a pink mechanical bull like no one else can, plus a vintage fetish bondage act designed with the slick, fashionable flair Dita is known for.
It doesn’t stop there, as guests are treated to Dita’s full repertoire of the biggest burlesque acts ever created, including a grand finale that goes from Dita donning an eye-popping Swarovski crystallized striptease gown with five of Dita’s signature jeweled champagne and martini glasses on stage at once, followed by a lively parade of the extravagant Bob Mackie “Jewels” showgirl costumes.
In addition to adorning some of the original Jubilee costumes designed by the legendary Bob Mackie and Pete Menefee, Dita stuns on the stage in six costumes custom-designed for her by Jenny Packham, Alexis Mabille, Michael Schmidt, Catherine D’Lish, Mister Pearl and Christian Louboutin.
All feature an unprecedented amount of genuine Swarovski crystals, including Swarovski’s own exquisite jewelry designs.
Dita Las Vegas is based on original StripScapes created by Dita Von Teese and Catherine D’Lish over the past 23 years. Collaborating with Dita to stage this unprecedented show is Director and Executive Producer Michael Schwandt; Choreographers Kevin Wilson, Johanna Sapakie, Marcel Wilson and Ferly Prado; Lighting Designers David Finn and Alex Goldberg; Video Content Design by Media Monks and Jeremy Danger; and music by Chuck Henry and Jack Rayner. Boys Noize and Monarchy created additional music.
