Before Moulin Rouge and Folies Bergere, there was Désir, the jewel of Paris.
The ultimate meeting place for showgirls and soldiers, bejeweled courtesans and maharajahs, Désir is a new theatrical world devoted to all things beautiful, seductive and acrobatic. It is the ultimate unexpected New York night. Framed by glistening water, the incredible skyline, and the waterfalls of South Street Seaport, the surroundings magically match the beauty of the show inside.
The stellar creative team includes former Sydney Theatre Company director Wayne Harrison, choreographer John “Cha Cha” O’Connell (Strictly Ballroom, Moulin Rouge, Enchanted, “2008 Academy Awards Presentation”) and music director Josh Abrahams (Moulin Rouge).
By combining sensuality and innovation, Désir has brought alive the rich history of the House of Boucheron and the magic of jewelry, with world-class performers in an intimate setting. There is even a traveling pop-up store, Boutique Désir, which will accompany the show's tour through the U.S. Jewelry and spectacle: what's not to love?
This is a show not to be missed and runs In New York City now until November 2.
