After celebrating a coup of stellar reviews and a sold-out premiere season at the iconic Regent Theatre, Moulin Rouge! The Musical announces a return Melbourne season, with performances commencing from August 2023.

“Melbourne audiences have embraced Moulin Rouge! The Musical so warmly, it’s been a joy to witness it’s profound impact on the city. We simply couldn’t ignore the scores of people that didn’t get a chance to experience the show in Melbourne. An opportunity arose, and we decided to seize the moment to return to Melbourne and give the audiences what they’ve been asking for,” said Global Creatures CEO and Producer of Moulin Rouge! The Musical Carmen Pavlovic.

“The Regent Theatre is absolutely resplendent when dressed in rouge, and we can’t wait to bring this sparkling diamond of a show back to delight the bohemians of Melbourne in 2023.”
