The most famous cabaret in the world will be back in Australia and New Zealand to hold castings in various cities! 

Eagerly awaited, the first casting outside Europe since Covid will take place under the expert eye of Janet Pharaoh, Artistic Director of the Moulin Rouge and assisted by Erik Sorensen, Resident Choreographer. The artistic team will travel to Australia and New Zealand to pick up new talents to perform on the stage of the famous cabaret, which has been illuminating Paris since 1889! For many years, the artists from Australia have been the most represented nationality amongst the cast!

Castings will be based on special requirements: strong classical dance training as well as criteria specific to the Moulin Rouge:  minimum size (5’9” for girls and 6’1” for boys), well-balanced figure but also and mainly personality, charisma and the capacity to assimilate choreography!

Auditions will take place in July in 7 different Australian cities and in August in New Zealand for one day. The members of the artistic team will conclude their tour with a special introductory audition class for 16 to 19 year olds in Sydney. More information can be found below. 

After these auditions, the Moulin Rouge will welcome the chosen artists into the current show ‘Féerie’ and its team of dancers.
The lucky dancers will travel to Paris for a month of rehearsals and will join the team of 80 artists, from 16 different nationalities. 

‘Féerie’ is an amazing 1.45 hour-long show with 1,000 costumes of feathers, rhinestones and sequins, sumptuous settings in shimmering colours and the famous French Cancan... An exceptional show which welcomes every year more than 600.000 spectators from all around the world!
