Chrys Columbine

A true queen of international burlesque and cabaret, the stunning Chrys Columbine is frequently lauded in the press as Britain’s answer to Dita Von Teese, but with a twist - she’s the only burlesquer who combines the art-form with her breath-taking skills as a trained-concert pianist!

The London-born showgirl is known globally for her unique, exquisite routines and has been a driving force, alongside her contemporaries, in bringing British Burlesque into the mainstream.

From the likes of her enchanting Venus show (inspired by Boticelli’s painting The Birth of Venus), her out-of-this-world Fan Dance Phenomenon, to her impossibly-seductive Naked Nocturne which sees her playing Chopin’s Nocturne in C-Sharp Minor while disrobing, Chrys is a truly charismatic entertainer whose musical prowess puts her own, inimitable spin on the art of burlesque.

Having mesmerised crowds all over the world -  with venues in locations as glam as LA , Paris, Sydney and London - her credits also include MTV, Dom Perignon, the Cannes Film Festival and the London 2012 Olympic Games!

She was a leading figure on burlesque’s biggest-yet theatre tour An Evening of Burlesque at major venues all over the UK and Europe (including O2 Arena) for a two-year stint, and recently enjoyed a run of her own show Chrystal Cabaret at London’s Hippodrome Casino.

With the ethereal beauty of a Greek goddess, the sex-appeal that would give any Hollywood film star a run for her money, and a number of exquisite routines, she is one of the most original, charismatic and celebrated figures burlesque has known.
