New Adventures and Illuminations present The Red Shoes. A two-time Olivier Award-winning show directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne, 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 the New Adventures Orchestra, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis, and projection from Duncan McLean.


Enthralling. Richly satisfying. — The Guardian
