MOULIN ROUGE- THE BALLET Comes to Cinema Screens Nationwide April 2014

SpectiCast and Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet are pleased to bring audiences the vibrant presentation of Moulin Rouge® - The Ballet to cinema screens for the very first time. Inspired by the most famous cabaret in history, theMoulin Rouge® has been the subject of many books, paintings, movies and musicals. Along with a rousing French soundtrack, the ballet features high-kicking choreography by Jorden Morris and a passionate story of love, ambition and heartbreak. Watch the trailer here.

Turn of the century Paris finds a city of exquisite contradiction. Amidst a time where extreme poverty and hardship, a heady elixir of personal freedom thrives throughout the city, breeding lifestyles both reckless and addictive. Drawn to Paris, a flame fuelled by the hearts of lovers and the souls of poets, Matthew and Nathalie tempt fate as they seek love and destiny at the infamous cabaret - The Moulin Rouge®.

Sharing his insights about the conception of Moulin Rouge® - The Ballet, famed choreographer Jorden Morris explains, "the story came from the idea that I wanted to explore two young people of very different backgrounds thrown together in the cauldron of Paris at the time. I took inspiration from several sources, John Huston's film, Jean Renoir's film, Pierre la Mure's book as well as the fashion, art and music of the era."

Moulin Rouge® - The Ballet is directed by brothers Pierre & Francois Lamoureux of Cinemusica, the duo behind Grammy Award-winning concert film Zappa Plays Zappa and Emmy Award-winning Harry Connick Jr., In Concert - On Broadway.

Running Time: 145 minutes

Choreography: Jorden Morris
