SHOWGIRLS AND BALLERINAS – THE MOULIN ROUGE BALLET

Where Parisian cabarets and Bohemian night life  meet is the sultry story of Moulin Rouge.

The never-disappointing, Royal Winnipeg Ballet (RWB), ushers in anticipation to celebrate 70th  anniversary with the inaugural Moulin Rouge Ballet performance. Choreographed by former RWB dancer Jorden Morris, the performance is set in 1880s on the romantic streets of Paris where two lovers, Matthew and Nathalie, test their love and destiny at the infamous cabaret – The Moulin Rouge.  Morris has a track record of choreographing RWB’s Peter Pan and evinced that it took him almost 2 years to  find the perfect music for the production. The performance will include tunes from distinguished composers, Chopin, Ravel, Offenbach, Massenet and my favourite, Debussy with his famed Clair de Lune piece. To complement the romantic musical backdrop, the stage will be embellished with a large moulin otherwise known as the windmill, Eiffel Tower, bridge, and a tower with a staircase inside to successfully evoke “exquisite contradiction” and beauty of old Paris.

This is the first time in history where Moulin Rouge was created into a ballet and will make its word premiere in Minneapolis on Oct. 17 and make its way to the major Canadian cities. RWB will be in Vancouver from November 19 – 22. Purchase your tickets at Ticketmaster.
