This Lesson 2: Moulin Rouge lesson plan also includes:
The pop movie Moulin Rouge was based on the opera La Boheme. Learners watch the last 30 minutes of each musical to compare and contrast social opposites. They'll first discuss the social differences of the main characters and how those differences reflect topics of daily life, political beliefs, and social morality. They then create and perform a new final scene for the film Moulin Rouge.
