Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes

03/12/2019 - 19/01/2020


Description

Based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale Music by Bernard Herrmann   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.   "Britain’s most succesful choreographer will blow your mind with his sheer imagination, wit and brio" THE TIMES   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.   "The great showman of British dance with an instinctive understanding of what audiences want’" DAILY TELEGRAPH
