The Moulin Rouge in Paris, directed by Jean-Jacques Clerico (CEO), is a dazzling and spectacular universe, symbol of the Parisian way of celebrating since 1889. Beginning its life as a popular cabaret and dance hall, the place became an iconic music hall in the roaring twenties, and then a theater where numerous famous French and international artists went public. Today, the Moulin Rouge and its 60 artists present the Féerie revue show: two hours of astonishment between cabaret and music hall styles where dance scenes and surprise performances are interspersed – not forgetting the Moulin Rouge’s most emblematic dance, the French Cancan! Since its creation, the Moulin Rouge in Paris has always been an invitation to live and share all the emotions and the effervescence of a unique party. http://www.moulinrouge.fr/
