Folies Bergere Show Overview
"Folies Bergere" has been deemed the "classic" Las Vegas show. The glitz and glamour of Las Vegas is what makes this show shine. With two shows four days a week and one show two days a week it is easy to see why "Folies Bergere" is so popular. The "Folies Bergere" musical extravaganza is the show that personifies the very soul of the city of Las Vegas.
From excellent and amazing vocal performances to intense dance numbers, this is just the beginning of a Las Vegas "Folies Bergere" show. In 2004, "Folies Bergere" was revamped by director (and choreographer) Jerry Jackson. Held at the Tropicana Resort & Casino, "Folies Bergere" was given a new 1940’s dance/vocal number as well as modernized updates and enhancements to tweak the show. The additions include a tribute to the place where "Folies Bergere" is held. The very history of the Tropicana is preserved in the memory of this Resort & Casino in its 1940s’ hey day, when it was known as "Club Tropicana".
"Folies Bergere" will take you on a trip through history. The history of the woman is explored. Your journey will start with the 1850’s and move through to the present day woman. This evolution includes the reinvention of women to strong, stable positions of power as well as that of the femme fatale we all know and love. With the sexy Las Vegas showgirls that make "Folies Bergere" as eye catching as its story is compelling, the show shows the woman in all her splendor, physically and mentally.
Latin Mambo numbers, a discovery that Jackson added to the show, light the stage in this French-style review of “Folies Bergere”. This is what sets the movement and structure of the entire show. If you have not experienced Folies Bergere, then you have not experienced Las Vegas in its true and elegant form.
