Meet Our Headliners
Every year ABurlyQ has titillate audiences with some of the most extraordinary living legends and award-winning headliners available. Past “sin-sations” that sparkled across the ABurlyQ stage have included Satan’s Angel, April March, Madeline Sinclaire, Perle Noire, Gigi O’Lovely, and more.
Now breaking into its 7th year, ABurlyQ Burlesque & Sideshow Spectacular is excited to announce this year’s glittering stars Ophelia Flame and Trixy Rene.
We can’t wait to fan this flame! This fiery vixen has made a name for herself throughout the burlesque world as a pioneer of the Minneapolis neo-burlesque scene. She’s strutted her stuff across stages in Canada, Europe, and of course the U.S.
Known as “The Burning Sensation,” Ophelia Flame holds the 1999 Miss Exotic World 2nd Runner-Up and 2012 Reigning Queen of Burlesque 1st Runner-Up titles from The Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. She is also the recipient of the 2017 Sassy Lassy Award from the Burlesque Hall of Fame for her outstanding contribution to the art of Burlesque, her dedication to education and support of the Museum that has spanned over two decades.
Repeatedly voted one of the Top Burlesque Performers in the World by 21st Century Burlesque Magazine, Ophelia Flame has received a Golden Pastie Award from the New York Burlesque Festival and has been featured in The Burlesque Handbook by Jo Weldon, Marie Claire Magazine, and numerous other publications. She has been producing shows since 2004 and teaching burlesque since 2005.
Ms. Flame was a creator of Best of Midwest Burlesk, the region’s first burlesque festival, The Minneapolis Burlesque Festival, and brought the international phenomenon Dr. Sketchy's to the Twin Cities in 2008. Ophelia is honored to be on the Board of Directors and an instructor at BurlyCon Seattle, the nation’s premier conference for burlesque artists. She is co-founder and headmistress of Minnesota’s first school of burlesque, The Playful Peacock Academy. She enjoys anything shiny and cocktails at inappropriate hours.
