Moulin Rouge: The Ballet
Young lovers Matthew and Natalie are at the center of Moulin Rouge, The Ballet. Their innocent love story is set amid the decadence of Paris’s most famous red-light-district cabaret. With a background of sensuality, gaiety and over-the-top glamour, Moulin Rouge features rousing music, and men in top hats chasing flirty dancing girls doing the cancan in toe shoes. But it’s not all riotous merriment; there’s a steamy, dramatic tango scene and a sweet, innocent pas de deux between Matthew and Natalie in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. 8 p.m. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713‑227‑4772 or visit www.spahouston.org. $30 to $65.
