Based on the world's most infamous cabaret, the ballet features high kicking choreography and a passionate story of love, ambition and heartbreak, transporting audiences to turn of the century Paris. Choreographed by Jorden Morris, "Moulin Rouge® - The Ballet" "...is a triumph…stunningly beautiful" ("Atlanta InTown") and "the type of show that would start a lifelong admiration for theater and dance" ("Creative Loafing Atlanta"). The romance begins in turn of the century Paris, a city of exquisite contradiction. Drawn by the city's passion, a flame fuelled by the hearts of lovers and the souls of poets, Matthew and Nathalie tempt fate as they seek love and destiny at the infamous cabaret - The Moulin Rouge®. As their innocent love is threatened by the evil tyrant and owner of the Moulin Rouge®, Zeidler, the two--with the help of Toulouse-Lautrec--try to hold on to the bond they share only to have unforeseeable circumstances take hold.
