DOUBLE OLIVIER AWARD WINNING SHOW 2017
Best Entertainment & Family
Best Theatre Choreographer
Based on the film by MICHAEL POWELL and EMERIC PRESSBURGER
and the HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN fairytale
Music by BERNARD HERRMANN
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. Victoria Page lives to dance but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion.
Matthew Bourne’s magical adaptation of the classic Powell and Pressburger film 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.
The Red Shoes
has just won two major awards at the 2017 Oliviers: Best Entertainment & Family and Best Theatre Choreographer. For more details click here
