Can-can the night away with Moulin Rouge!

After several months of frequently sold out shows in Melbourne, Moulin Rouge! The Musical is making its way to Sydney. 

The classic film will come to life onstage remixed in a musical mash-up extravaganza, as the show makes a long-awaited homecoming to Sydney, where Luhrmann’s film was made at Fox Studios, 21 years ago. 

The production stars Alinta Chidzey stars as the sparkling diamond, Satine, Des Flanagan stars opposite Alinta Chidzey as bohemian dreamer Christian, Simon Burke AO plays legendary club impresario Harold Zidler and Andrew Cook will play The Duke.

Montmartre’s resident artistes include Tim Omaji as Toulouse-Lautrec and Ryan Gonzalez as Santiago.

Australian Executive Producer Angela Dalton says, “To create the intoxicating sensory spectacular that is Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a task of epic proportions that involves a team of hundreds of the very best production personnel in the world. Our incredible Australian team is so proud to present this show to eager audiences in Sydney, the scale is simply phenomenal, it’s a feast for the eyes and ears from start to finish.”

The 10-time Tony Award-winning musical has wowed global audiences, from London’s West End to Broadway in New York, with the modernisation of the film’s music showcasing a new way of expressing the hopeful, yet heart-wrenching story of Satine and Christian. 

Moulin Rouge! The Musical will have its first Sydney performance on Saturday 28th May, and will run until September 25th exclusively at the Capitol Theatre.
