The narrative centers on Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just landed in Paris in search of motivation. He discovers it in Satine, a stunning courtesan who works as "the sparkling diamond" at the infamous Moulin Rouge nightclub.

That’s what this raucous new production of Moulin Rouge! exudes in spades,” the Guardian writes. There is a lot to love about the wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are amazing.”
