Moulin Rouge The Musical opened July 25, 2019, in New York City. The influence for the musical is the movie version by Baz Luhrmann. The musical is a journey through excess of glitz, grandeur and glory like the movie and like the real Moulin Rouge in Paris. Diving into this world is possible thanks its production budget of $28 million. It is considered a jukebox musical because it uses music from more than one source to tell a story about love and art. The music is a mashup of several songs from several artists and time periods. It includes songs by Elton John, David Bowie and Madonna.
The Moulin Rouge in Paris
The real Moulin Rouge in Paris serves as an inspiration for Moulin Rouge The Musical in New York. The Moulin Rouge venue first opened October 6, 1889, at the foot of the Montmartre Hill. It was opened by Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler. This is where the very rich could go to slum it. Circassiens et Circassiennes was the first review launched in April 1890. It became a place for operettas like Voluptata, La Feuille de Vigne and le Rêve d’Egypte. After World War I, it became an iconic music hall thanks to Jacques-Charles and Mistinguett. In October 2019, it celebrates its 130th anniversary.
