Donald Gordon Theatre
THE RED SHOES
Matthew Bourne / New Adventures
Based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger
and the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale
Music by Bernard Hermann
Victoria Page lives to dance, but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion. A beloved fairytale 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.
Matthew Bourne's magical adaptation 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), with sumptuous designs by Lez Brotherston (set and costumes), Paule Constable (lighting) and Paul Groothuis (sound).
An intoxicating drama where life imitates art with fateful consequences; The Red Shoes will dazzle your senses and break your heart.
