Burlesque queen Dita Von Teese is to perform the UK premiere of her new creation, The Opium Den, exclusively at Erotica at London’s Olympia in November. The show, in which she features as an exotic dragon lady, marks her first return to the UK since 2007.
“It is with great pleasure that I will perform my most opulent and most erotic burlesque act, The Opium Den, at London’s Erotica show this year,” said Dita. “With such a vibrant burlesque and fetish scene, London has always been one of my favourite places to perform. I am thrilled to make a return engagement at Erotica this November!”
Dita will perform daily at 6pm during the three-day event and also be available for book signing sessions.
The Erotica organisers say the return of Dita has sparked a surge in ticket sales. “People should fight for a ticket while they can,” said Erotica supremo Savvas Christodoulou. “We have been in negotiation for several months to secure Dita’s services and premiere The Opium Den at this year’s show. It is costing a small fortune to bring her in but we have a reputation for providing the very best to the British public and Dita is just that.”
Erotica 2010 takes place at The Grand Hall Olympia, on Friday November 19th, Saturday November 20th and Sunday November 21st. For more details or to buy tickets visit www.erotica-uk.com
