In 1992, Norman Langill stopped his stroll down a Barcelona street on a curiosity-driven whim and entered a magical, alternative universe. What he found was one of Europe's few remaining spiegeltents—portable dance halls that had once acted as homes for wandering cabarets and circuses. Enchanted by the space and the rakish show inside, Langill resolved to bring the experience back to America.
Now in its 17th year, Teatro ZinZanni brings Langill's dream to life inside an imported Belgian spiegeltent originally constructed in 1910. Amid its hand-carved wooden columns and sparkling stained glass, performers enact enchanted evenings that blend European cirque, live music, clowning, and cabaret. Audiences seated restaurant-style at white-clothed tables also savor a multi-course meal as they take in the sultry spectacle.
