Baz Luhrmann Reacts to 'Moulin Rouge' Being Used at Olympics in Figure Skating Routines!

The music from Moulin Rouge got a second life after it was heavily featured during the figure skating portion of the 2018 Winter Olympics and the film’s director Baz Luhrmann is loving it!

The filmmaker is opening up about his reaction to the Olympians performing to the music.

“I can tell you that when I woke up and the Moulin Rouge album was No. 13 on the iTunes chart — and I don’t know if it had even been on the charts in 10 years — I was as surprised as everybody else. But hey, I’m happy to consider Moulin Rouge on Ice: The Skating Spectacular! I know how I’d cast it,” he told Variety.

He added, “I look at the routine that the two Canadian skaters [Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue] did, and it’s ballet on ice. … It’s an extraordinary thing to watch. It uplifts the soul. It exalts the spirit. You’re sort of aware of how brilliantly clever the choreography is, but all of that just melds into one gesture, until you’re just completely inside the emotion between those two characters. It’s kind of another level.”

Moulin Rouge will be heading to Broadway soon and it will have a world premiere production in Boston from June 27 through August 5.

'Moulin Rouge' Being Adapted Into Stage Musical!
