Do you believe in freedom, beauty, truth and love? Yes? Good. A spectacular stage version of Moulin Rouge! wings its way to the Regent Theatre this winter for its Australian premiere. The stage version is closely based on the film and features (almost) all of the songs you know and love, including 'Lady Marmalade', 'Come What May', 'Your Song' and a whole new version of the 'Elephant Love Medley'. There are also a whole bunch of songs in there that were released in the years following the film's 2001 release date.
Theatre has been one of the worst-hit industries since the first lockdowns began in 2020. But each time Melbourne's performing artists get knocked down (or rather, locked down) they get back up again. This August treat yourself to one of Melbourne's best theatre shows or musicals – August marks the highly anticipated launch of Moulin Rouge! The Musical as well as the return of some of our favourite performances such as Iphigenia In Splott.
