When I was a freshman in high school I danced to Lady Marmalade in front of my entire high school. I feel like Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet's Moulin Rouge will be a little different.
The story of romance, turn of the century Paris, and the cabaret, is probably Nicole Kidman's best film, so I have high hopes for the ballet version. Royal Winnipeg brings Moulin Rouge to Chicago's Auditorium Theatre next weekend, November 2-4. For tickets and more information visit http://auditoriumtheatre.org
