In 1900 Paris, a man named Christian, who is suffering from depression, begins writing (“Nature Boy”). One year earlier, he moves to the Montmartre district to join the Bohemian movement. Meeting a troupe of performers led by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Christian helps them finish their show, Spectacular Spectacular, to sell to Harold Zidler, owner of the Moulin Rouge. They arrive at the Moulin Rouge as Zidler and his “Diamond Dog Dancers” perform (“Zidler’s Rap Medley/Can Can Dance”). Toulouse arranges for Christian to present the work to Satine, the star courtesan, unaware that Zidler has promised Satine to the Duke of Monroth, his potential investor (“Sparkling Diamonds”).
