Moulin Rouge!
The Musical!

Enter a world of splendor and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur, and glory

The winner of 10 Tony Awards® — including Best Musical!

The revolutionary film comes to life onstage, remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza

Pop the champagne! Enter a world of splendor and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur, and glory! A world where Bohemians and aristocrats rub elbows and revel in electrifying enchantment.


Welcome to Moulin Rouge! The Musical!

Directed by Tony Award winner Alex Timbers, Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a theatrical celebration of Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and — above all — Love.

With a book by Tony Award winner John Logan; music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Tony Award winner Justin Levine; and choreography by Tony Award winner Sonya Tayeh, Moulin Rouge! is more than a musical — it is a state of mind.


A Creative Powerhouse

Few people in the world are instantly recognizable by their first name alone, but Baz Luhrmann is certainly that kind of legend.

In 2001 Baz and his creative (and life) partner, Catherine “CM” Martin, created one of the most revolutionary moments in cinema history — the Australian film Moulin Rouge! In an instant the movie-musical was reborn, as our ears were immersed in a new style of mashing existing songs together to create new gems, whilst our eyes tried to keep up with the now-iconic flicks and zooms of Baz’s mind-blowing direction.

Now, 20 years later, Moulin Rouge! The Musical will come home to play its Australian debut in Melbourne. “Uncle Baz” and CM have been instrumental guides and supporters of the stage adaptation of their work.

Tell us in 50 words or less what your take on the show is from an educators perspective:

I was most taken with the design and athletic dancing. It’s a non-stop spectacle that appeals to all the senses. I was impressed that my students recognized the plot elements drawn from La Boheme, Edith Piaf and Lautrec.

Tell us in 50 words or less what your students’ take on the show was:

The students were so excited by the pop score – songs they knew – and the sense that, as artists, they are connected to centuries of creators. It was thrilling to see them respond to the show like that. They all want to do it in school next year!
