Fishnets & Spotlights: “Lido de Paris”

July 23 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The series final of “C’est Magnifique: Celebrating the 65h Anniversary of the ‘Lido de Paris’ Arrival in Las Vegas” focuses on the last years of the production. The spectacular “Allez Lido,” the 12th and final edition of the “Lido de Paris,” would open in 1977 during the Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal era of the Stardust Hotel & Casino, and close in 1991 while under the ownership of the Boyd Corporation. Join a panel of dancers drawn from throughout the 13-year tenure of “Allez Lido” to learn more about the the performers, costumes, sets, and dance numbers that made this show so memorable. The panel will be moderated by Su Kim Chung, Curator of Entertainment History Collections, UNLV Special Collections and Archives.
