Matthew Bourne’s double Olivier Award winning production of The Red Shoes returns to Sadler’s Wells this Christmas.
A sell-out for its world premiere in 2016, Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the beloved fairytale and Academy Award-winning film returns to London, having 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 live by the New Adventures Orchestra, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Paul Groothuis.
The cast features Adam Cooper, Ashley Shaw, and Dominic North, Liam Mower, Michela Meazza, Glenn Graham and Cordelia Braithwaite set to revive their acclaimed original roles.
An intoxicating drama where life imitates art with fateful consequences, The Red Shoes will dazzle your senses and break your heart.
Matthew Bourne’s The Red Shoes will run from 10 December 2019 until 20 January 2020 at the Sadler’s Wells
