Melbourne bohemians, if you missed out on seeing Moulin Rouge! The Musical!, you’re in luck.

Tickets for the return season will go on sale from Friday April 29.
Moulin Rouge! The Musical!
Melbourne was the first international city to play Moulin Rouge after its glamourous debut on Broadway. It also came to Melbourne 20 years after the premiere of Baz Luhrmann’s film. With ten Tony Awards under its belt, including Best Musical. This exciting musical is a feast for the senses, with gorgeous costumes, powerful set design and a heart-racing soundtrack.
“We simply couldn’t ignore the scores of people that didn’t get a chance to experience the show in Melbourne,” said Carmen Pavlovic, Global Creatures CEO and Producer of Moulin Rouge! The Musical! “An opportunity arose, and we decided to seize the moment to return to Melbourne and give the audience what they’ve been asking for. The Regent Theatre is absolutely resplendent when dressed in rouge, and we can’t wait to bring this sparkling diamond of a show back to delight the bohemians of Melbourne in 2023.”
This riveting Parisian tale explores the romance between a handsome young composer Christian and the actress Satine, star of the legendary cabaret. Produced by Global Creatures, this is the first Australian-produced musical to originate on Broadway.
Expect the show to feature all the songs you know and love, as well as hits from Adele, Katy Perry, Sia, Rihanna, Beyoncé and more. The massive soundtrack celebrates over 160 years of music, and features over 70 songs.
