After a long, cold year full of almost no stimulation, Melbourne is coming back alive with a plethora of events, performances and exhibitions being announced on the daily. The latest is Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! stage show, and first-round tickets are on sale now.
Arguably Luhrmann’s magnum opus, the 2001 film follows a group of bohemians doing their best to keep a stage show alive. The theatre adaptation follows the same story, except with a heap more music, dancing, glitz and glamour.
The show itself comes from much acclaim with New York Times featuring the production as a Critics Pick in 2019 along with 14 Tony Award nominations including best musical.
At this point, the season looks to kick off on Friday 13 August with dates running until November. Presale tickets are on sale right now—head over to the official Moulin Rouge! website and sign up to their subscriber list for early access, or hold out until this Friday 19 February for general release.
In the meantime, check out everything else happening in Melbourne during February.
