Paris by night, city of lights. And among these lights, on the hills of Montmartre, one alluring beacon - the Moulin Rouge.

This tempting title takes you to the heydays of the legendary cabaret, its dancers, its artists and its surroundings. We take a look at the history of the cabarets in Montmartre, we meet artists like Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Jules Cheret and even Picasso and we stare at stars and legends such as Jane Avril, La Goulue, Josephine Baker, Edith Piaf and Yves Montand. Moulin Rouge takes the reader on a photographic journey through space and time - from the provoking cancan to the outfits and their influence on past and present fashion.

From movies and books to shows and events. We also treat that wonderful family of revue, burlesque, vaudeville, variety and cabaret and of course its current revival.Be transfixed by famous neo-burlesque names such as Le Crazy Horse and Dita Von Teese.
