About The Red Shoes

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.

Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film stars Ashley Shaw as Victoria Page, Adam Cooper as Boris Lermontov, Dominic North as Julian Craster, Michela Meazza as Irina Boronskaya, Liam Mower as Ivan Boleslawksy and Glenn Graham as Grischa Ljubov.

Set to the achingly romantic music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, The Red Shoes is orchestrated by Terry Daviesand 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.

An intoxicating drama where life imitates art with fateful consequences, The Red Shoes will dazzle your senses and break your heart.

“A gorgeous take on a film classic!"—The Times, London

“Matthew Bourne works his magic. Blissful."—Daily Telegraph
