The Aurora Spiegeltent Makes A Fringe Debut!

The Spiegeltent makes a spectacular return to the Fringe with the breathtaking and roomier Aurora. From its treasured home in the Netherlands, the Aurora leaves Europe for the first time ever to make the long journey to Rochester – her first great overseas adventure. This very special and beloved piece of history with its stained glass windows, magical faceted mirrors, velvet-draped ceilings and antique bars fit for royalty is only one of a small handful remaining in the world today. For 10 days, the Aurora lives in Rochester as an indelible and scintillating part of the Fringe, attracting the young and the forever-young. Thousands have danced on its beautiful round wooden floors. They’ve sat in the magnificent private booths for drinks, conversation and romantic tête-à-têtes. 

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



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