The story centers upon Christian, a young American composer and writer who has just showed up in Paris on a quest 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 shares. There is a lot to love about the vibrant energy throughout, it’s joyfully more inclusive than the film, and the well-known songs really are stunning.”
