About Calypso Cabaret Show

Calypso Cabaret is a unique Thai Transgendered Artists Show which attracts millions of tourists per year. The exceptional performers show their skills and talents on the show ranging from all-time favorite classics to trending shows. The show’s sole purpose is to express their freedom for who they are and what they can do.

The show is full of bright colors and loud music with electric performances. First showcased in 1988 with different audience members, Calypso’s main focus was to make a difference in the stereotype that was there at that time. They tried to fill the stage with many colors, lights, and music to allow transgender people to show their talents for music and dance.
