North Students See ‘Moulin Rouge!’ On Broadway

July 5, 2023

Valley Stream North High School band, orchestra, and chorus members took a trip to New York City to see Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway. For many students, the trip, which took place on May 31, was their first opportunity to see a Broadway production.

Moulin Rouge! won Best Musical at the 2021 Tony Awards and is based on the 2001 film of the same name. Set at the eponymous Paris cabaret in 1900, Moulin Rouge is a love story about a struggling writer and the star performer at the night club. The musical features an eclectic mix of original and unique song arrangements from a broad variety of artists including Elton John, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Cab Calloway, The Rolling Stones and many more.

Several students in attendance were already familiar with the musical, and had the opportunity to perform one of the songs, “Come What May,” last year as part of the District Festival Chorus.
