Moulin Rouge is the most famous cabaret in history and Royal Winnipeg Ballet will be bringing the can-can to the Concert Hall. It was challenging for the director to convert the sultry dancing to structured ballet – but I hope that not all the sexiness has been removed.

The show will be in Winnipeg October 21st through 25th with shows at 7.30pm each day and also a second 2pm show on the 25th. Ticket range from $23.50 to $86.50, although it appears that many of the lower priced tickets have been sold out for most shows. You can pick up tickets from ticketmaster.
