Matthew Bourne’s The Red Shoes
‘A gorgeous take on a film classic‘ – The Times
‘Enthralling. Richly satisfying.’ – The Guardian
A sell-out before its world premiere season opened in 2016, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film returns in 2019, having won two Olivier Awards and 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 by the New Adventures Orchestra, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis and projection from Duncan McLean.
The DVD & Blu-ray includes The Making of The Red Shoes documentary that features behind the scenes footage and interviews with the case and crew, including Matthew Bourne, to give you a peak behind the curtain.
