Enter a world where feather frocks, sparkly silhouettes and showstopping high-kicks rule. There’s nowhere quite like Moulin Rouge Paris. Entertaining crowds for over 100 years, each night more than a hundred talented twirlers take center stage for two epic hours of Parisian cabaret like you’ve never seen it before. The inspiration behind Baz Luhrman’s award-winning film and works by famous artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Moulin Rouge has been a perpetual Parisian icon since it first flung open its doors in 1889. Besides the jigs and jives, the theatre’s rich history, culture and dazzling décor alone will impress, its plush red velvet interiors and elegant chandeliers a throwback to the Paris of eras gone by. It may attract tourists by the dozen, but there’s a reason why this show remains a best-seller. Surviving two world wars, economic crises and social turmoil, Moulin Rouge has stood the test of time, its delightful mix of risqué choreography, awe-inspiring sets, and decked-out dancers lending a euphoric Parisian charm that can’t be replicated. Cancan, anyone?
