ILOILO CENTRAL COMMERCIAL HIGH SCHOOL Iznart Street, Iloilo City Moulin Rouge is a French term for “Red Windmill.” But in the story it is a cabaret,  where girls are dancing the can-can. The Moulin Rouge is best known for the birth of the can- can. The famous line in the story is the theme “This Story Is About Truth - This Story Is About  Beauty - This Story Is About Freedom - Above All Things This Story Is About Love” Love above  all.  A young  British  poet/writer, Christian, moves to the  Montmartre  district of  Paris  with  few possessions beyond his  typewriter  to try to establish himself in the  Bohemian  culture. By  luck, he encounters a musical troupe led by  Toulouse-Lautrec  that is attempting to present a new  play for Harold Zidler, the owner of the  cabaret , the  Moulin Rouge . Christian's writing helps to  finalize the show, entitled "Spectacular! Spectacular!” and the troupe take Christian to the  cabaret to present the work itself to its star  courtesan , Satine or the Sparkling Diamond, in  private to win her favor. However, the same night, Zidler has arranged for Satine to spend the  night with the wealthy Duke who is looking to buy the cabaret. Through miscommunication,  Satine mistakes Christian for the Duke, and the two depart to her private chambers. She begins to  seduce him despite his insistence he is only there to present his script, but the two slowly realize  they have fallen in love with each other. The Duke returns, and discovers Christian and Satine in  a compromising position. Satine quickly states that Christian is only there to present a play. With

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
