For some, the Folies Bergere show at the Tropicana is the quintessential Las Vegas show. The glamour of old Vegas, timeless music and the essence of sexy are all parts of this show. Add to this dazzling scenery, hilarious comedy and scant costumes, Folies Bergere has withstood the test of time, continuing to thrill audiences in fabulous fashion.
From the original award-winning Can-Can to the steamy new Latin Mambo numbers, Folies Bergere takes the traditional French-style revue to new heights of excitement. If you haven't experienced Folies lately, you just haven't experienced Las Vegas. The show continues to take audiences on a journey of the evolution of women, beginning in the 1850's into present day, as they reinvent themselves in the true fashion of the femme fatale.
Sultry costumes and creative lighting accentuate the production as does the soundtrack, which accompanies the audience and the dancers as they move from year to year celebrating all that is woman. For the finale, the dancers bring it back to basics by reviving their traditional costumes and showcasing their beauty in the final numbers. With its flawless transition from one era to the next and constant reinvention of itself it's no surprise that Folies Bergere has withstood the test of time since 1959 to still be considered on of the cornerstone revues in Las Vegas today.
