The highly anticipated stage adaptation of Moulin Rouge! celebrated the reopening of Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre, with a special gala performance July 29.

The production, directed by Alex Timbers, began performances July 10.

Like the film, the show features original songs (including the Golden Globe-nominated “Come What May”) and pop standards. New to the score are songs released in the 17 years since the film’s premiere. Tony winner John Logan pens the book, with Sonya Tayeh choreographing, and Justin Levine serving as music supervisor and orchestrator.

Taking center stage are Aaron Tveit as Christian and Tony winner Karen Olivo as Satine—the roles originated on screen by Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman.

The cast also includes six-time Tony nominee Danny Burstein as Harold Zidler, Tony and Olivier nominee Sahr Ngaujah as Toulouse-Lautrec, Tam Mutu as the Duke of Monroth, Ricky Rojas as Santiago, and Robyn Hurder as Nini.

The production also features sets by Derek McLane, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Justin Townsend, sound design by Peter Hylenski, and wig and hair design by David Brian Brown.
