The Red Shoes
“Sheer poetic beauty and gripping storytelling”
A woman’s obsession with dance leads to her ultimate self-destruction in this story of passion and jealousy. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s legendary gothic fairytale and the 1948 Academy Award-winning film, The Red Shoes is a twisted tale of delusion and reality intertwined with beauty in a stunning romantic fantasy.
You will long remember this extraordinary blend of spectacular dance, striking imagery, original film and live music.
