Matthew Bourne Announces the World Premiere of THE RED SHOES
Today, Tuesday 5 April, New Adventures announced the World Premiere of Matthew Bourne’s production of THE RED SHOES.
The production will open at the Theatre Royal Plymouth on Monday 21 November with an eight week Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells from Tuesday 6 December 2016 to Sunday 29 January 2017.
A beloved fairy-tale and Academy Award-winning movie, THE RED SHOES has seduced audiences and inspired generations of dancers with its 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.
Creating the coveted role of Victoria Page will be the Australian dancer and New Adventures Principal, Ashley Shaw. Ashley is currently wowing audiences around the UK and receiving rave reviews for her performance as Aurora in Matthew Bourne’s “Sleeping Beauty”.
