A sell-out for its world premiere tour in 2016, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film returns to Southampton, having won two Olivier Awards and dazzled audiences and critics 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, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Paul Groothuis.
‘A gorgeous take on a film classic’ The Times
‘Matthew Bourne works his magic. Blissful’ Daily Telegraph
‘A feast for the eye. The Red Shoes will be dancing for years to come’ Observer
