Moulin Rouge program for the Hoffmann Girls show – 1924
Iconic parisian nightlife venue, the Moulin Rouge was created in 1889 by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller. Until 1902, the place was only intended to be a ball, extended with a kind of fair. Then the dancefloor moved into a music hall scene, keeping its first attractions on the side. Almost fully burnt down in 1915, the place was renovated on the early 20’s by several talented architects who worked with the illustrator R. De Valerio and the architectural decorator Boucaut. Led by Pierre Foucret and the music publisher Francis Salabert, the cabaret took back its inescapable place among the pleasure spots in Paris.
