Information

A sell-out before its world première tour opened in 2016, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film returns to Birmingham Hippodrome, having won two Olivier Awards and dazzled audiences and critics across the UK and the USA.

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.

Based on the classic Powell and Pressburger film and the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, and 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 and sound by Paul Groothuis.

The Red Shoes sold out its first visit to the Hippodrome and returned for an unprecedented second week due to phenomenal demand when it again smashed box office records. Early booking is highly recommended for the show’s much anticipated return.
