It is the beacon of Parisian night life. The epitome of artistic and social glamour. The Bal du Moulin Rouge has been lighting up the French capital ever since the late 19th century when legendary artistic figures came from far and wide to triumph or fail on its stage. It was home to the immortal La Goulue, Valentin and Jane Avril, but also Colette, Mistinguett, Harry Fragson, the Doriss Girls and many more. All lit up the stage in spectacular shows and glittering operettas that made this temple of the French Cancan one of the most famous music halls in the world. This book guides us from the early years of the Moulin Rouge to today in a whirl of girls, feathers and glitter. Welcome to the legendary pleasure dome that continues to magnify the spirit and delights of Paris, adding its own special glow to the City of Light.
Christophe Mirambeau specializes in the history and aesthetics of musical theater and the music hall in the 20th century. He is also a dramatist and theater director and works at the present time on the catalogue raisonnÃ© of Franceâ€™s greatest 20th-century lyricist, Albert Willemetz.
