Spiegeltent 



Another season of cabaret, drag excesses, music, and circus acts wraps up at Bard College's Spiegeltent this month. “My criteria is sophisticated, fun with a wink,” says Dublin-based arts promoter, publicist, and Spiegelmaestro Nik Quaife. Tango night returns August 6 with dance demonstrations by world-renowned performers. London's Guardian says jazz singer and stand-up comic Lea Delaria, performing August 5, “talks like a coffee grinder, and sounds like a cross between Ella Fitzgerald and a Broadway diva.” The Fishtank Ensemble (pictured) bring gypsies to the stage on August 18. Spiegelclub offers a dance floor and late-night bar Friday and Saturday nights. Performances run Thursdays through Saturdays. $5-25. Through August 21. Bard College. (845) 758-7900; www.fishercenter.bard.edu/spiegeltent.
