From The Vau de Vire Society, co-creators of the world renowned Edwardian Ball, Lagunitas Beer Circus, Phantasm Halloween, New Bohemia NYE and a decade of The Bay Area’s most creatively outrageous nightlife events, comes an immersive, circus-infused, scandalous and historic dinner-theater experience that will titillate your every sense. The Soiled Dove is a one-of-a-kind touring show that takes place under Vau de Vire’s massive 12,000 sq. ft. circus tent, the Tortona Big Top!
To enter The Soiled Dove, is to step back into another world, inspired by the Bay Area’s notorious Gold Rush & Barbary Coast era. A fully built-out 19th century outpost of decadence and delights, a replica of a 19th century Oakland saloon and dancehall, replete with all its characters and misfits. An evening filled, with decadent culinary creations served alongside world-renowned performances accompanied by a 10 piece live orchestra with surprise musical-guest cameos each evening.
In 2019, The Soiled Dove graced Downtown Oakland with shows every Friday and Saturday evening…under Vau de Vire’s massive 12,000 sq. ft. circus tent, the Tortona Big Top! Thank you to all who helped make it a circus! Stay tuned for details on our next season!
