Choreographer Joden Morris' "Moulin Rouge -- The Ballet," created in 2009 for Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet, will make its Chicago debut, Nov. 2-4 at the Auditorium Theatre, 50 E. Congress.

Driving the story is the romance between Nathalie (the sparkling dancer who works as a laundress until she is singled out for a place onstage by Zidler, owner of the Moulin Rouge), and Matthew, the young artist who captures her heart, and also is befriended by Toulouse-Lautrec. Zidler's obsession with Nathalie, and her attempt to escape with Matthew, results in tragedy, Sun Times' Hedy Weiss reports.

Tickets are $30 to $74. Purchase tickets here.
