Moulin Rouge celebrates 120th anniversary.
The world famous Moulin Rouge cabaret in Paris, celebrates its 120th anniversary.
The Cabaret with the famous red windmill on its roof has become the famous birthplace of the traditional French can-can, which is still performed there.
When we were in Paris, some friends bought us tickets for my birthday, to go and see the show. I was amazed at the number of people that were queued up to see the show.
Every evening there were two sessions, 7pm and 9pm ~ we attended the 7 and coming out, the crowds thronged to go into the the second show.
The show includes dancers, acrobats, magicians, clowns and music.
I loved all the wonderful costumes of every colour of the rainbow and all the glitter and glam, of rhinestones, sequins and feathers.
The theatre lights go down, the curtain is raised..... and the entire troupe appears on stage, under the admiring gaze of the audience who find themselves entering the Garden of the Moulin Rouge to discover the magical atmosphere of the place!
