Moulin Rouge in Paris is the perfect choice for a fabulous evening show

The Moulin Rouge, or 'red windmill' is one of the most well loved attractions in Paris. Founded in 1889 by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller, the venue is best known as the birthplace of the 'can-can' a dance that is still performed for delighted audiences today.

The artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec was a regular patron, and his posters for the club assured its rapid rise to international fame. Rebuilt in 1921 following a fire, the famous 'red windmill' on its roof is a landmark to this day.

A new show, 'Feerie' is your chance to experience this exciting Parisian institution for yourself. Magnificent costumes of sequins, rhinestones and feathers made in Paris, stage sets designed in Italy, fabulous dance routines, and the eagerly anticipated return of the giant aquarium are certain to make 'Feerie' another massive hit for the Moulin Rouge.
Superb scenes such as 'Moulin Rouge - today and yesterday' introduce the audience to the glamorous Doriss Girls and the magic of Le Moulin Rouge. 'The Pirates' and 'Au Cirque' illustrate the romance and glamour of the venue perfectly, before 'Moulin Rouge from 1900 to...' brings events up to date for the final scene 'International Acts'.
