The drama is set around the turn of the 20th century during a period known as La Belle Époque in Paris, France's bohemian paradise in Montmartre. The story centers around Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just landed in Paris on a quest of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a mesmerizing courtesan who works as "the sparkling diamond" at the infamous Moulin Rouge nightclub.
“At the end of the 19th century, when our hopeless romantic lead walks through Montmartre for the first time, all he can see is ‘dazzling chaos’. That’s what this raucous new production of Moulin Rouge! exudes in spades,” the Guardian writes. There is a lot to like about the vibrant energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are stunning.”
