The Moulin Rouge is located in the eighteenth arrondissement where there are lots of Paris locations close by.

Nowadays the Moulin Rouge stages impressive can can performances and cabaret but in the past, it was known as the hot spot for high class harlotry, the strip provoke is even announced to have once been invented there thanks to a concubine who slowly removed her clothes in a vain search for a flea crawling on her body. At this time Parisian shows, such as the Moulin Rouge and Folies Bergre, pioneered semi-nude dancing and tableaux vivants. One landmark was the appearance at the Moulin Rouge in 1907 of an actress called Germaine Aymos who entered dressed only in 3 small shells covering her womanhood.

The Moulin Rouge flung open its doors to the world in 1889 and was a cabaret made by Josep Oller who also owned the Paris Olympia. The Moulin Rouge today still offers musical dance entertainment for adult visitors from around the world. A lot of the love of turn-of-the-century France is still present in the club’s decor. Iconic for its performances of the can-can, it had for a number of years existed as a respectable, working-class party dance, though it was in the early days of the Moulin Rouge that concubines first adapted the dance to entertain the male clientele.

the prevailing show ; Ferie’ is composed of a troupe of 100 artists, including 60 Doriss Girls hired world wide ; 1000 costumes of feathers, rhinestones and sequins, made in the most renowned Parisian workshops ; luxurious sets in sparkling colors, uniquely designed by Italian artists ; outstanding world acts, and the awaited return of the giant aquarium ; all this performed to original music recorded by 80 musicians and 60 chorus vocalists.
