Rochester, N.Y. – Thursday night, the Fringe Festival begins in Rochester.

But Wednesday night was the dress rehearsal! 531 multi-art acts are getting ready for their performances, taking place during the 10-day festival.

“This is a brand new show,” said Fringe Festival producer Erica Fee, “just created for Rochester Fringe. It’s got a Vegas-style, modern circus, cabaret show, lots of different acts and it’s housed in the beautiful Spiegeltent, which is an imported Belgian music hall!”

The tent was shipped from Belgium; there are only a handful left in the world.

175 of the acts at the Fringe Festival are free.
