See Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film come to life on stage. Based off a set in the Montmartre Quarter of Paris during the Belle Epoque at the turn of the 20th century, Moulin Rouge! The Musical tells the story of Christian, a young composer who falls in love with actress Satine, star of the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret. The Musical celebrates some of the greatest popular music of the past 50 years. The stage musical features many of the iconic songs from the movie plus hits released since the movie premiered in 2001.

This will be a musical you will not want to miss!

The new stage production will be held in Melbourne’s much loved Regent Theatre after exciting renovations. The $19.4 million contribution from the Victorian government will be the theatres first upgrade since it reopened in 1996.

Global Creatures, the Australian production powerhouse created by Melbourne entrepreneur Gerry Ryan and acclaimed producer Carmen Pavlovic, is behind the new musical and will bring the show to Melbourne.

Victoria continues to be the creative and cultural capital of Australia, with recent industry reports showing the state generates the highest share of national live performance attendance, as well as the highest share of attendance at musical theatre productions.
