Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger returns. Since its 2016 world premiere, the double Olivier Award Winning production has dazzled audiences across the UK and the USA.
The Red Shoes is a 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.
Set to the achingly romantic music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, The Red Shoes is orchestrated by Terry Davies and played live by the New Adventures Orchestra, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Paul Groothuis.
With Adam Cooper, Ashley Shaw, Dominic North, Liam Mower, Michela Meazza, Glenn Graham and Cordelia Braithwaite, this intoxicating drama sets out to dazzle your senses and break your heart.
