Moulin Rouge


On Saturday my friend and l went to see Moulin Rouge in the iconic Regent Theatre.

This beautiful old theatre is owned by the Marriner Group which owns several other CBD Theates.

The Theatre is also home to The Australian Ballet and Opera Australia for the next 3 years come April 2024. I hope some of you can see a show here; it's a gorgeous theatre.

This was my first time seeing this show and l haven't seen the film either. 

What can l say. It was loud, colourful and full of energy. The stand out performers were James Bryers as the Duke and Bert Labonte as Toulouse-Lautrec. Simon Burke gave a good performance as Harold Zidler and Des Flanagan was good as Christian. Alinta Chidzey as Satine has a good voice, but, l hate to say it, l think she may have had an off day. There are so many other songs in this production and l don't think many of them suited her voice. She is a good singer but l wasn't keen on  her performance. I would definitely see her in other productions but not in this one again. 

The large crowd loved it and l would give it a good 8.5 out of 10.

Moulin Rouge is playing until November 12.
