The Exotic Lives of Lola Montez
She horsewhipped the editor of the Ballarat Times for giving her a bad review.
Swung down mineshafts on a single rope with champagne in hand.
Escaped arrest dressed only in jewels.
Her performances ‘the most indelicate that could be given on public stage’.
Shrouded in gold nuggets. Sharp with insults. Swathed in scandal.
In 1855 the wildest showgirl of the nineteenth century, Lola Montez, toured the Australian goldfields.
Steeped in history, this rollicking performance travels the extraordinary life and legend of this remarkably adventurous woman.
