Matthew Bourne's production of The Red Shoes
A beloved fairy tale and an Academy Award–winning movie, The Red Shoes has seduced audiences and inspired generations of dancers with its story of obsession, possession, and one young woman's dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance, but her ambition becomes a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion: impresario Boris Lermontov who brings her fame, and composer Julian Craster who wins her heart. Matthew Bourne, the only British director to have won the Tony Award for both Best Choreographer and Best Director (Swan Lake), brings his magical new adaptation filled with a stunning combination of 1940s swing, waltz, and ballet. His company New Adventures was last at the Kennedy Centr in 2013 with the "vividly emotional" Sleeping Beauty.
