Unfortunately we have had to cancel this screening.
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, sound by Paul Groothuis and projection design by Duncan McLean.
Matthew Bourne’s The Red Shoes was filmed live at Sadler’s Wells in London and is the seventh New Adventures production to be filmed in partnership with More2Screen and distributed to cinemas worldwide.
World-famous dancer, actor and choreographer, Adam Cooper, returns to New Adventures after more than 20 years to play the iconic role of Svengali-like Impresario ‘Boris Lermontov’. One of New Adventures much-loved stars, Ashley Shaw, reprises her award-winning role of ‘Victoria Page’ having first created it for the 2016 World Premiere Season. Acclaimed New Adventures performer Dominic North dances the role of struggling composer ‘Julian Craster’, with whom Victoria falls in love. The filmed cast also includes other celebrated New Adventures dancers: Michela Meazza as the Prima Ballerina of Ballet Lermontov ‘Irina Boronskaya’, Liam Mower as Premier Danseur ‘Ivan Boleslawsky’ and Glenn Graham as the Ballet Master ‘Grischa Ljubov’.
Matthew Bourne’s The Red Shoes is directed for the screen by Ross MacGibbon and produced by Illuminations.
