Spiegelworld came to life in New York City in the summer of 2006. At its core is a unique venue; a heritage 440-seat Belgian spiegeltent. Popular across Europe during the early 20th century, the luxurious traveling spiegeltents were used as dance halls and music/cabaret venues, featuring intimate in-the-round seating, ornate wooden panelling, mirrors, stained-glass windows, and velvet-upholstered seating booths.

Spiegelworld also features a carnival-style bar facility and a speakeasy VIP lounge. Since 2006, Spiegelworld has presented an annual summer season in New York City on Pier 17, South Street Seaport. Spiegelworld has produced a range of acclaimed shows within the spiegeltent, including Absinthe, La Vie, Late Night Lounge and Desir. Spiegelworld has also toured to Miami South Beach and Melbourne where they were the feature entertainment of the 2009 Australian Open tennis grand slam.

Tickets are priced at $59 and $89, and are available at or by calling (212) 239-6200. A special VIP Ticket is available for $129 and includes a complimentary glass of Champagne.

The performance schedule is as follows: Monday at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday – Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. and Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

Empire will be presented in New York by Related Companies and Boston Properties.
