Tickets on sale for ‘Monte Carlo Goes Burlesque’ benefit for Museum of Contemporary Art
The queen of burlesque, Dita Von Teese, will perform at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s (MCASD) 35th annual gala, “Monte Carlo Goes Burlesque,” on Sept. 10. Proceeds from the gala support MCASD’s education programs and exhibitions. Co-chairs are Valerie Cooper and David C. Copley.
According to organizers: “Dita will mesmerize Monte Carlo guests with a scintillating performance that is quintessentially Dita. With the museum’s boudoir-inspired transformation as the backdrop, guests will enjoy a cocktail party featuring signature burlesque-themed concoctions followed by an elegant dinner in the dazzling, open-air dining room overlooking the coast.”
After dinner, the gala will continue late into the night at the After Party featuring DJs, dancing in the Boom Boom Room, gaming, and another late-night performance by Dita.
Von Teese has been the “performer of choice” at a variety of events for high profile figures and design houses, such as Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Chopard, and Cartier. She was the first guest star in history at Paris’ Famed Crazy Horse, where she performed sold-out runs. She is a modern day style icon who has topped best-dressed lists all over the world, and is credited for bringing back the glamour and allure of Old Hollywood.
