Moulin Rouge Paris Stories


MORE THAN 125 YEARS OF ART

Throughout time, artists of all kinds have been inspired by the Moulin Rouge of Paris: painters, decorators, singers, costume designers, film directors, choreographers, and many more. The famous Cancan dancer La Goulue was the painter Toulouse-Lautrec’s muse back in the Belle Epoque. During the 1920s, Mistinguett, nicknamed Queen of the Music Hall, was an endless source of inspiration for the young sketcher Gesmar… During each era since 1889, these stories have been laid on canvas or paper to let themselves be discovered or re-discovered for everyone’s greatest enjoyment.

CANCAN… BUT NOT ONLY!

Today, the 80 performers of the Moulin Rouge present Féerie, a colorful revue show created by talented artists and craftsmen that lets the spectators live a unique experience in a mythical venue. Through four poetic and energizing main scenes, Féerie is a journey in space and time: from the garden of the Moulin Rouge back in 1889, to the wild lands of Indonesia, to the joyful atmosphere of a circus, and more. Féerie is full of surprises. Symbolized by the most iconic dance of the Moulin Rouge, the world-famous French Cancan, this revue show is a tribute to the Parisian spirit of celebration.
