The Moulin Rouge presents a Tribute to the Moulin Rouge
Live on Stage - The Moulin Rouge Revue performers
Le Moulin Rouge, world famous thanks to its French Cancan, and immortalized by the painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, has always presented sumptuous shows to its spectators. From the original stage play Woman and Chicago to the Burlesque performances and the great revues... the concept is still the same at the Moulin Rouge: feathers, rhinestones and sequins, fabulous settings, music and of course... the most beautiful girls and guys in the virtual world.
Saturday from 7-9pm the Moulin Rouge comes alive with a special tribute performance directed by our own Goddess of the stage, Xanthia Lisle. She has outdone herself this time with her incredible set work, costumes and designs. She has brought together for your pleasure three of the timeless acts from the Moulin Rouge Movie. The selections are Lady Marmalade, Sparkling Diamonds (Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend), El Tango de Roxanne followed by our infamous Cancan Medley.
Don't miss your chance to see the world-renown Rouge Revue dancers strut their stuff on the Moulin Rouge's well worn stage.
Thank you one and all for your continued patronage. It is for you, our Patrons, that we keep this dream alive.
As many of you may know, there have been a few changes on Moulin Rouge Island. Let me fill you in on the details.
Silverwind Tzedek has brought his club, Catch a Falling Star, to Moulin Rouge Island. We are splitting events on the island between the Star and the Moulin Rouge to help people discover more of the island.
Catch a Falling Star will host events on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 6PM to 8PM Linden time. The Moulin Rouge will still be hosting events on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 7PM to 9PM Linden time. The music feed is shared in all public locations on the island, so anyone coming into either location will hear the DJ and music no matter where they are.
The Star's events will be more traditional style events and will be held not only in the actual club, but at the club pool, beach or gardens depending on the schedule. The Star also has a Greedy table, splooders, trivia, and date auctions. The Rouge events will be that special elegance that you all expect with the Saturday night special shows and CanCan, as always.
The island Courtesans are welcome at all events and all over the island. In fact, the gardens, pool, and beach give them even more places to take clients to.
All these changes do require staff to keep track of everything.
Kris Harmison is the Owner of the Moulin Rouge and the Island
Silverwind Tzedek is the Owner of Catch a Falling Star and is the head DJ for the Island
Xanthia Lisle and Illendel Foulsbane are the Moulin Rouge General managers
Emerald is the manager of Catch a Falling Star
Evangelina Manhattan is another go to person on the Sr. management staff
If you have thoughts and ideas please don't hesitate to share with any management or myself. We love you and want this to be a success for everyone and not to be a drain on any one persons time and resources.
The most important thing is to be on the island, meet, greet and share with our Patrons. Make as many events on the island as possible. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help you be a success. There are tip roses in the Catch a Falling Star just like in the Rouge so use them please.
Special $$Linden Cash$$ pumpkins have been hidden along
with our wonderful prize pumpkins. NOTE - there are over
40 pumpkins currently hidden on the island and more are
HINTS: Not all pumpkins are the same size, not all pumpkins and gourds are prize pumpkins, not all pumpkins have floating text that says they are prize pumpkins. Pumpkins may be hidden
anywhere on the island so be sure to look in the shops, throughout the Moulin Rouge, in the gardens, everywhere you can see and maybe where you can't. As we move closer to Halloween you may find prizes in Ghosts too!
We also have golden coins worth money dropping on Main Street, Lucky chairs in several locations, many free gifts, a money tree and all sorts of FUN all over the island.
If you are looking to use a video of Second Life materials for commercial usage/gain you have to email the Linden Labs licensing folks and get their permission. They want to see some info from you like...
What your film's about?
Do you own rights to content featured in the film? If not, do you have permission from the creators?
And of course they want to see it and have your real contact info. I often find that folks don't realize that they need to even get permission from the owner of the Venue or the content before they produce videos. Often they use these videos to promote their "business" and that makes it a use for commercial gain.
If you want to shoot video of the Moulin Rouge on the Moulin Rouge Island contact Kris Harmison, I am sure we can work something out.
Interesting enough... I was looking for something on You Tube and ran into this Lady Marmalade video. They shot it in our Moulin Rouge and they mention in the ending credits that they got permission from Vanderghast Kavka... of course I bought him out long before this was shot. Really the Host picture in the opening screen is something I added after the change. I suppose that makes it sort of a violation of somesort, however it is a lovely video and they did a great job - just wish they had gotten permission to shoot it and given credit to Don Duke the designer of the Rouge and myself as the owner and operator.
I might ad we did Lady Marmalade as a full stage production with literally months of production work on sets, scripts and tools not to mention costumes and practice. This was a couple of years back and the productions have become easier so we could produce it now with maybe a month of work and practice. Perhaps we will give it another go...
So, I tried to go to Strokerz headquarters tonight and I get a region not found message. Amsterdam, which bills itself as a place for escorts etc... has itself listed as Mature. This is all so confusing. I went to too of the Imposter Moulin Rouges in SL tonight as well and both have closed up shop, or maybe never opened?
The Kink-o store is still in place, and the Twisted Orchid, it is good to see some places might survive.
This sort of publicity might be what the Lindens are afraid of
I think it actually helps SL and drives in more business.
What are ADULT regions?
This designation also applies to Adult groups, events, and classifieds.
Your region must be designated Adult if:
You have representations of intensely violent acts, whether or not photo-realistic (for example, depicting death, torture, dismemberment or other severe bodily harm). This could be publically displayed images for instance, or animations depicting something like rape.
You have images that display Photo-realistic nudity; photo-realistic means that an image either is a photograph or cannot be distinguished from a photograph. This is a gray area some images in SL of avatars look pretty realistic.
Expressly sexually themed content, spaces or activities (whether or not photo-realistic); The Lindens broadly define what is "sexually themed" to include any sexually oriented activities and conduct.
What do you need to do to view Adult regions?
You have two tasks to accomplish if you want to go to Adult regions and view Adult content:
Your account needs to be verified. To do this complete one of the following:
Add payment info on file for your account with Linden Lab. You do this from the “My Account” page on the SL Web site.
Put United States dollars(USD) on your XstreetSL (formally known as SLExchange) account from a verified PayPal account.
You need to change the setting in the Second Life Preferences window that allows you to view Adult content.
What are MATURE regions?
This designation also applies to Mature groups, events, and classifieds.
This is a catchall for almost everything else that happens in Second Life. Most of the non-adult activities that are common in Second Life. For instance; dance and social clubs and groups, stage and theater performances including Burlesque are considered Mature, so long as they don't promote sexual conduct, such as through pose balls (whether in "backrooms" or more visible spaces). “Sexy” clothing or skins are probably Mature unless due to their tags they are flagged as Adult.
The spectacular Moulin Rouge and it's accomplished Directress Xanthia Lisle once again bring the live stage performance of Chicago to the stage in Second Life for you!
The Moulin Rouge Revue presents a new production of an old classical Broadway musical that has been dazzling its fans since its first RL debut in 1975 - CHICAGO! Showtimes: Friday, Aug 28, 2009 7-9pm SL Saturday, Aug 29, 2009 2-4pm SL Sunday, Aug 30, 2009 7-9pm SLSLURL: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Moulin%20Rouge/40/186/29
CHICAGO spins a seductive web of intrigue by offering a glimpse into the “glamorous” side of crime in the 1920’s as we are walked through the struggles and trials of the murderesses inhabiting Chicago’s Cook County jail. Crime has never looked so good as each number draws you in through spectacular songs with attention getting lyrics and fabulous dancing that will leave you at the edge of your seat.
The Moulin Rouge Revue goes all out to provide show stopping entertainment featuring spectacular numbers and stage sets designed by our talented directors Xanthia Lisle and Evangelina Manhattan. Our seasoned cast of Moulin Rouge Revue dancers will “Razzle Dazzle” you leaving you begging for more.
The Moulin Rouge, owned by Madame Kris Harmison is a Neo-Victorian Role Play sim, we role-play in the early turn of the century as an alternate reality. Neo-Victorian is an aesthetic movement, which amalgamates Victorian and Edwardian aesthetic sensibilities with modern principles and technologies
The Rouge Review Dancers, those famous Diva’s from the Ol’ Moulin Rouge in Second Life (SL) have outdone themselves as they danced their hearts away in this month’s stage performance; CHICAGO. The performance had everything that you would expect from the talented Directors at the Moulin Rouge, a universal tale of fame and fortune, show stopping music and award winning dancing along with the gorgeous dancers in their elaborate costuming.
The shows directresses Evangeliana Manhattan and Xanthia Lisle who have been putting on elaborate stage performances in SL for over two years designed the many beautiful sets and created or designed the scripts and effects used in the show. The creative concept for this show came from the wonderful mind of Xanthia though both women as well as the other directors from the Moulin Rouge are incredibly capable and creative people with a bohemian bent.
If Second Life gave out awards for the best stage performances this show would surely be a multi time winner as proven by the crowds and their screams for encores and the standing ovations. It is no surprise that Chicago and this great dance team have WOWed audiences for multiple performances. The Moulin Rouge itself is renowned not only for their weekly performances of the CanCan and Live Stage Burlesque shows but it’s many other fine shows; Woman, Lady Marmalade, The Ladies of the Orient, Eargasms, Eyegasms and Orgasms just to name a few. Many lucky patrons will attest that the real talent lies in the beautiful and gracious staff of the Moulin Rouge who gather every evening to entertain the Patrons with dancing and conversation.
Whether you are looking for your first musical stage, performance or you are a Patron of the Moulin Rouge you can’t go wrong with this great group of talented individuals in the beautiful Moulin Rouge.
I thought I might post some thoughts today on the difference between a common Escort and a true Courtesan...
It is important to know the difference between an Escort and a Courtesan because the difference is substantial and critical for meeting the needs of different people. It is important as well to know yourself and what kind of client you will be. Once you have discovered these things we can begin to create an experience for you that will be unforgettable for a day or a lifetime. Different people are looking for different things at different times. We all need a release from time to time with no attachments, no names, and no further obligations. The terms used by the industry and in ignorance by some, are not always properly used and they create confusion. VIPs, Exclusive, High Class, these terms and others often have little meaning when used by the groups trying to lure you in and take your money. They don’t care about anything but matching you up with something that will separate you from your money. Your satisfaction is definitely not guaranteed.
A Courtesan, is before anything else is a lady, she is exclusive, and she is truly selective about her encounters. She does not see common men; she focuses her eyes on the truly elite gentleman, her favors she may offer a man of quality, a man who can truly appreciate what she has to offer. She is more than a night of pleasure behind closed doors; she is charming, intelligent, and witty. She appreciates the finer things in life and a gentleman who knows what the finer things in life are. This is not to say that behind closed doors the refined lady can’t turn into the wild beast, or the docile kitten depending on her Patron.
An Escort is more common, their skill set varies and their talents can be found on street corners at wharfs, cheap bars, expensive casinos and resorts, wherever men gather there they are. Their prices vary from the very cheap to the more expensive. Some have the sexual skills necessary to be more than an escort but they do not have the class, the wit to compete, the personality to compare to a fine Courtesan.
The Courtesans of the Moulin Rouge in Second Life, and the Courtiers as well, are truly talented in their abilities to perform in a text and graphics, pixel environment in a manner that will satisfy and amaze even the most demanding of patrons. These ladies and gentlemen, are of the highest caliber and train extensively to satisfy your every need and pleasure you in any way.
