The Red Shoes
A beloved fairy tale and Academy Award-winning movie, The Red Shoes has seduced audiences and inspired generations of dancers with its tale of obsession, possession and one girl's dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion.
Matthew Bourne’s (Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty) double Olivier Award-winning adaptation of the classic Powell and Pressburger film is set to a new score arranged by Terry Davies using the mesmerizing music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann (most famous for his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles). The Red Shoes is Matthew Bourne’s first new production in four years and had its world premiere at Sadler’s Wells, London in December 2016, where it opened to rave reviews and a sold-out eight week season.
An intoxicating drama where life imitates art with fateful consequences; The Red Shoes will dazzle your senses and break your heart.
