the hearts of audiences across the globe with its tale of love, passion, and bohemian spirit.

‘sparkling diamond’, and Ewan Mcgregor as Christian, a penniless writer who is enthralled by
the bohemian ideals. The two young lovers are from two very different worlds but their
worlds collide at Paris’ iconic Moulin Rouge! Against a backdrop of extravagant parties,
forbidden love, and artistic ambition, their passionate romance unfolds amidst the glittering
lights of the most iconic venue in Paris.

to dazzling new heights. Whether you’re a longtime fan of the film or experiencing the story
for the first time, Moulin Rouge! is sure to steal your heart.

grandeur… welcome to the Moulin Rouge! The whole theatre has been transformed into the
Moulin Rouge itself, there’s even a giant elephant!

The jukebox musical includes songs from legendary artists such as Elton John, David Bowie,
The Police, and Christina Aguilera. The well-known songs from the film have also been
adapted to still feature in the stage musical, such as Your Song, Elephant Love Medley, Lady
Marmalade, and Come What May. The stage musical also includes new mash-ups with
contemporary music from artists like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Beyonce. The eclectic
soundtrack featuring a mix of classic songs and modern hits brings the story to life in
