Folies Bergère Lives on with Extended Exhibit Dates at Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas
Due to overwhelming demand, the exhibit “Les Folies Bergère: Entertaining Las Vegas One Rhinestone at a Time” has been extended through Aug. 31, 2017, at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas

A partnership between the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA)’s News Bureau and the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas, the exhibit explores the beauty, artistry and extravagance of the legendary Folies Bergère show. The exhibit, which opened on June 11, 2016, has been moved to a larger exhibition space to accommodate nine additional costumes, a wardrobe cabinet and a larger video screen.

A staple of the Tropicana Las Vegas stage for nearly 50 years, Les Folies Bergère was Las Vegas’ longest-running Parisian cabaret show. Through its run, the groundbreaking show captivated audiences with its variety of classic music hall performances, including the world-famous cancan dance and the mystical showgirls.

The exhibit interprets the legacy of the production through photographs, costumes and personal narratives of those individuals who brought life to the show. The Las Vegas News Bureau and the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas provided rarely seen photographs and spectacular stage costumes from their respective archives. The exhibit at the Las Vegas Convention Center will continue its run through Jan. 15, 2017.
