Are you ready to enter the sexy, extravagant, and forbidden world of Moulin Rouge? Are you ready to mingle with the aristocrats and the free-spirited bohemians? Are you ready to experience the seductive lure of Paris? Are you prepared to embrace the Bohemian ideology of Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and love?

Then enter the iconic Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, the perfect setting for this, exciting, exhilarating, and enchanting musical play. Pop the champagne, lift up your glasses, and toast the Bohemian life.

For many Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge is embedded in the mind of movie lovers as one of Hollywood’s most iconic films. With an outstanding cast featuring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor and a set design that took one’s breath away. Released in the early 2000s it was nominated for a remarkable 129 awards winning two Academy Awards, three Golden Globes, and one BAFTA.

The story centers around Christian, a young poet, and talented songwriter who has come to Paris in 1900 to pursue a career and become a member of the Bohemian movement. Christian ends up falling hopelessly in love with Satine, the star of the famous Moulin Rouge. However, Satine has already been promised to the unscrupulous Duke. A love triangle ensues. As Christian and Satine try to stay together against all odds, they are led down a dark and dangerous path, but Satine is holding a terrible secret of her own.

Now in 2022 Moulin Rouge! The Musical directed by Tony Award winning Director Alex Timbers delivers electrifying, energetic, dazzling performances and choreography that will leave you fully satisfied in every way.  Some may say there were not much originals songs in this production that linger in your mind. But with over 70 top hits of the last century weaving into this story of love, passion, ambition, power, and sacrifice you don’t need anything else.

And of course along with superb directing, such exquisite performances cannot be accomplished without the expertise of lighting, set design, costume,hair, makeup design, sound design, and choreography. Together all these elements give us a scintillating visual feast that will always be remembered by so many theatre lovers.

The Moulin Rouge of Paris, managed by Jean-Jacques Clerico (CEO), is a dazzling and
spectacular universe, the symbol of the Parisian way of celebrating since 1889. Starting life
as a popular cabaret and dance hall, the venue became an iconic music hall in the Roaring
Twenties, and then a theatre where numerous famous French and international artists
stepped out into the limelight. Today, the Moulin Rouge and its 60 artists present the Féerie
revue show: two hours of amazement between cabaret and music hall styles where dance
scenes and surprise acts intersperse – without forgetting the Moulin Rouge’s most
emblematic dance, the French Cancan! Since its creation, the Moulin Rouge of Paris has
always been an invitation to live and share all the emotions and effervescence of a unique
party extravaganza. http://www.moulinrouge.fr/
