Matthew Bourne’s double Olivier Award-winning smash hit The Red Shoes returns to Sadler’s Wells for the Christmas season. Based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, this sumptuous adaptation of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's iconic 1948 film is a tale of passion, obsession, possession and one woman's dream to be the greatest dancer in the world.

Ballerina Victoria Page is a young, unknown dancer from an aristocratic background who lives to dance. With a twist of fate, she is catapulted to stardom under the authoritarian rule of charismatic ballet impressario Boris Lermontov until she falls in love with composer Julian Craster. Torn between love and her devotion to her art, Victoria is forced to make an impossible decision and tragedy ensues.

An intoxicating drama where life imitates art with fateful consequences, The Red Shoes is set to a new score arranged by Terry Davies using the mesmerising music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Hermann, performed live by the New Adventures Orchestra.
