Booking until 2 November 2024

Don’t miss Moulin Rouge musical tickets: a spectacular, spectacular theatrical event

The spectacular, Olivier Award-winning stage adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film Moulin Rouge is dazzling West End audiences at the Piccadilly Theatre. The Moulin Rouge musical is a modern classic story of love, beauty, freedom and tragedy, and as bombastic as ever on stage. Expect all of the music and visual delights you love from the film, as well as a few new surprises. Decadent set design, sumptuous costumes and a score full of hits make this a feast for the senses, and an eye-popping extravaganza.

When writer Christian meets dancer Satine, it isn’t long before they fall in love. Moulin Rouge owner Harold Zidler, though, relies on Satine to appease the Duke of Monroth, whose money keeps his business running. Soon, Satine is forced to choose between her career and true love, but tragedy and heartache are never far away…

Moulin Rouge! The Musical celebrates some of the greatest popular music of the last half a century, with the show featuring many favourites from the original film as well as new additions that have topped the charts since the movie was released in 2001. Whether you have seen the film before or not, you won’t be able to resist the exhilarating remixes of Elton John, Lady Gaga, The Rolling Stones, Fatboy Slim, Lorde, Rick Astley and many, many more. The standout moment alone makes Moulin Rouge musical tickets worth the entry price, as “Elephant Love Medley” gets a jaw-dropping update. In total, the musical rattles through 70 songs credited to 160 artists, and spanning over 160 years of music.

The Moulin Rouge musical is adapted from Baz Luhrmann’s film and dialled up to the max for theatre audiences, with a stunning set design that spills out into the auditorium and quite literally paints the town red! Expect elephant, jewels, glitz and glamour as you step inside and take your seat. The show is so dazzling, it went on to win 10 Tony Awards out of a total of 14 nominations, including Best Set Design, and was the star of the ceremony following its 2019 Broadway premiere. It transferred to the West End in November 2021 to similar acclaim, with critics declaring it “wonderfully wild” (The Guardian), with “spectacle in spades” (Time Out). 

Moulin Rouge! The Musical is directed by Tony Award winner Alex Timbers, who is fast becoming known for his standout musicals including Beetlejuice, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and Here Lies Love. It features a book by John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator), choreography by Sonya Tayeh (Kung Fu), and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Justin Levine (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson). The show is created with Luhrmann‘s blessing and was a decade-long project that saw the creatives pour their heart and soul into making the story burst from the stage in a way that did justice to its incredible source material.

Melissa James (The Magician’s Elephant) stars as Satine opposite Jamie Muscato (West Side Story) as Christian in the Moulin Rouge musical, and their affecting performances bring the doomed romance to life with heart-stopping effect. Other cast members include Matt Rixon (Hairspray) as showman Harold Zidler, Ian Carlyle as Toulouse-Lautrec, Ben Richards as The Duke and Elia Lo Tauro as Santiago.

Pop the champagne and revel in the excitement of Paris’ most famous club, miraculously transported to the West End! Bohemians, aristocrats and everyone in between are all invited to fall in love with the incomparable Moulin Rouge musical at the Piccadilly Theatre.
