Based on Baz Luhrmann’s vibrant and visionary 2001 film starring Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman, the Olivier award-winning musical adaptation features over 65 songs, 250 costumes, and 2 giant elephants (but we don’t talk about those…).

Soon he discovers the Moulin Rouge, a nightclub at the centre of the rebellion, where the rich and poor sit next to one another engrossed by the entertainment on offer. It is here where Christian claps eyes on Satine, the star of the show. Soon a deadly love affair begins, but will the young couple find their happily ever after? ‘Love Is All You Need’ after all…
