One part vivid imagination, two parts carnival and a shot of old world burlesque mixed with a Heavy Dash of decadence and you have ABSINTHE, a unique show that premieres Strip-side on Friday, April 1. This new production by internationally renowned Spiegelworld, Base Entertainment and Jess Ravich makes its vibrant debut at the Roman Plaza at Caesars Palace.

An imaginative show in a unique venue, ABSINTHE is the crown jewel of the Spiegelworld experience, an adult carnival that will transform the Roman Plaza in front of Caesars Palace into an entertainment playground. As the sun sets and the vibrant energy of The Strip sets in, Spiegelworld provides a retreat from reality. It allows party-goers to trip through a captivating maze of tents and early 20th Century European décor housing an adult carnival, complete with a secret speakeasy, raucous beer garden and mischievous drinking games including "Flip Stein" and "Dom Pong." As nightfall approaches, this enchanting world opens to an intimate setting for all ABSINTHE performances, which take place in the masterful centerpiece Spiegeltent, a heritage wooden show tent from Europe opulently decorated with mirrors, staiNed Glass and velvet. Audience members are immersed in an intimate emporium where all of the wild and outlandish acts of ABSINTHE unfold in a theatre-in-the-round presentation.

General admission tickets are available for $69 + tax, with a VIP package available at $99 + tax per person. The VIP package includes early entrance into the Spiegeltent to select your seat and access to the exclusive VIP lounge. For performance times and prices for ABSINTHE, visit www.Ticketmaster.com.
