The Red Shoes

Audio described in-house.

Matthew Bourne’s production of The Red Shoes. Based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and the Hans Christian Andersen Fairytale. Music by Bernard Herrmann.

The double Olivier award-winning smash hit returns.

A sell-out before its world premiere season even opened in 2016, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film returns to The Lowry, having won two Olivier Awards and dazzled audiences and critics alike 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.

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 Lowry and returned for an unprecedented second week due to phenomenal demand when it again smashed box office records, so early booking is highly recommended for the show’s much-anticipated return.’
