Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes

Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes

World Premiere of Matthew Bourne's 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 magical adaptation is set to a new score arranged by Terry Davies using the mesmerising music of golden-age Hollywood composer,Bernard Herrmann (most famous for his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles) and played live by the New Adventures Orchestra, with sumptuous set and costume designs by Lez Brotherston, 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.
