The Madame Zingara Theatre of Dreams is back! You can never believe all the rumours you hear, but I think most of us were not expecting to see her again. I, for one, am very pleased to see her return. I always believed the Tent of Dreams was an exciting addition to Cape Town. I recommended to every visitor that they go and check it out (read my review here). Now the recommendation is even stronger because it is bigger and better with the addition of the ‘shanty town‘ outside the tent where you can experience (in a fun, token way) what it’s like to visit a township and have a drink at a shebeen.
I went to the media launch the other night and the operation is as slick as ever. How they feed 500 people at the same time and manage to keep the food hot is something I can’t work out. But that’s what they do. The famous chilli chocolate steak is back, although I had the lamb shank which was pretty good. The wine list offers a great selection of wines at pretty reasonable prices.
The show has some amazing acts (and a few not so amazing acts too). The acts kept me interested the whole show, and the show ended with a really breathtaking act. I’m not going to tell you about them, you need to see them for yourself and that is exactly what I’m going to help you with right now.
I have 2 double tickets for Madame Zingara Theatre of Dreams to give away. If you would like to win a pair of tickets, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Zingara giveaway’. In the email please tell me until which month the Tent of Dreams is in Cape Town. You can find this information on their website:
The competition closes on Sunday (20th) and I will announce the winners on Monday the 21st.
The tickets come with some conditions:
Valid until 15th July
Valid for Monday to Thursday nights (ie not valid on Fri, Sat, Sun nights)
Ok, that’s it. Send your entry in!
Ps. I hear a rumour about Christmas in July at Zingara. Capetonians will know what that means.
