The Magic Crystal Spiegeltent Returns to Fringe!

Last year Rochester swooned to the elegant beauty of this jewel box of a venue from Malle, Belgium. Originally created as traveling dance halls in the early 1900s, these “Magical Mirror Tents” boast handcrafted wooden floors, stained glass windows, faceted mirrors, velvet-draped ceilings, an antique bar and private booths. Fit for royalty, only a handful of these lavish treasures remain in the world today, and we’re thrilled to bring the Magic Crystal back to Fringe.   

The Spiegeltent was a total sell-out hit last year. Buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment.  

Location: One Fringe Place at the corner of Gibbs & Main Streets, Rochester, NY 14604.

Entry to the Spiegeltent is via ticket only.  To enter, please purchase a ticket to Jay Pharoah, MARDI GRAS! by Cirque du Fringe, 20 Penny Circus, Silent Disco, or Brown Bag Disco.

The Magic Crystal is wheelchair accessible. All shows are performed in the round.

Seating Options

  • Single Tickets (General Admission): Single ticket seats allow you to get “up close and personal” to the action. All seats are first-come, first-served. Entrance is via the left-hand side door. Arrive early!
  • VIP Booths: These fabulous booths seat 6 and include dedicated table service. Entrance is via the right-hand door.
  • Standing Room Only: A limited number of standing room only tickets are available for popular shows on the day of performance only. 

The Spiegeltent’s return to Rochester has been made possible due to a generous grant from the Elaine P. and Richard U. Wilson Foundation. The Magic Crystal is owned by Spiegeltent Productions LLC and Mirror Palace BCBA.
