Christmas In July, that is.

Dolly Diamond is set to return to the Melba Spiegeltent with her brand new Christmas In July show. Playing from the 14th to the 16th of July, it’s set to be an evening full of cheer with a very Dolly twist.

Performing under the big top, Dolly will be accompanied by her live four-piece band led by Caleb Garfinkle. The show will also feature The Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Chorus, and audiences will be treated to a duet via Skype with renowned Australian singer, Kate Ceberano.

As this is Dolly’s fourth Christmas in July, mixing it up was important.
“I wanted to do songs that I’m not known to do so there are lots of pop songs, not really any ballads. It’s all about the jolly songs,” she said.

“The Spiegeltent is over 100 years old and it just makes you think of Christmas when you’re in a venue like that.”

When asked to describe the show in three words, Dolly was insistent that Christmas in July is sure to be a “fun, festive night-out.”

So, get into the festive spirit and head on down to the Melba Spiegeltent for a wonderful Christmas In July celebration. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, so deck the halls with dear old Dolly.
