A few years ago I saw a Royal Winnipeg Ballet production of Moulin Rouge at Conexus Arts Centre. Like the 2001 Baz Luhrman film, the ballet was inspired by the famous Paris cabaret of the same name. The RWB version was created by Jorden Morris for the company’s 70th anniversary in 2009, and involved a romance between an artist and a young dancer recently arrived in Paris in the 1890s.
This isn’t a live production by the RWB, instead its an HD film that is being screened at Galaxy Theatre on Feb. 22 with an encore performance on Feb. 25. You can find out more on the Galaxy website. And to give you a taste here’s the trailer:
