Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes at Sadler's Wells
Sadler's Wells, London
Suitable for 5-16 years
An intoxicating drama where life imitates art with fateful consequences; The Red Shoes will dazzle your senses and break your heart.
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 new adaptation reunites the creative team who brought you Sleeping Beauty. This world premiere is set to a new score arranged by Terry Davies using the mesmerising music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Hermann (most famous for his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles and Martin Scorsese) and played live by the New Adventures Orchestra.
