Hear the BAFTA-winning, Oscar-nominated filmmaker share insights from his long-standing career spanning film, opera, theatre and music, with credits including Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby and, most recently, Elvis. 

This event is closed for new bookings.

Bursting onto the scene with his Red Curtain Trilogy, comprising Strictly Ballroom (1992), the BAFTA-winning Romeo + Juliet (1996), and movie-musical Moulin Rouge! (2001), Luhrmann’s signature blend of fantasy, romance, decadence, and trademark theatrical aesthetic cemented his following amongst audiences and industry alike.

Showing his versatility and talent across all creative fields, Luhrmann’s production company, Bazmark Inq, garnered two Tony Awards for the Broadway run of Puccini’s opera La Bohème (2002) with Moulin Rouge: The Musical (2019) subsequently picking up ten Tony Awards. 

2008 saw the release of the sweeping big-screen historical epic Australia, while his adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (2013) went on to win two Academy Awards and is Luhrmann’s highest-grossing film worldwide to date. His most recent film, Elvis (2022), released this summer, has become the filmmaker’s highest grossing film in several countries, including the US and the UK, is this year’s highest-grossing non-franchise film to date, and is the second-highest grossing musical biopic of all time, globally.

This event will be BSL interpreted.

Member’s tickets are available from 9.30 BST on Wednesday 14 September. Public tickets are available from 10.00 BST on Friday 16 September.

Running time: Approx. 90 minutes
