Sadler’s Wells in Islington remains the best place to catch the work of Matthew Bourne as his latest production as part of his New Adventures production company makes its way to the venue. It is an adaptation of the classic film The Red Shoes from directors Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.
It is a magical film and one that has its admirers around the world (including some renowned filmmakers) and thanks to its origins as a fairy tale and the music put together by Bernard Hermann it is the perfect recipe for another Matthew Bourne success story.
The Red Shoes introduces us to a ballerina by the name of Victoria Page who soon finds herself a part of a staging of the classic Hans Christian Anderson fairytale The Red Shoes. It is a story with consequences as drama takes over and conflict carries it along to its memorable ending.
The film version dates from 1948 and it has grown in its reputation ever since that day. Now its emergence as a piece of work from Matthew Bourne will take it to new heights again as he has made a career of taking well known works and turning them into dance masterpieces, with many shows appearing at Sadler’s Wells. His previous hits include the controversial Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, as well as Sleeping Beauty and Edward Scissorhands. His company New Adventures continues to bring exciting new work to the stage and this continues with The Red Shoes, ensuring a legacy that will propel him into the future.
The Red Shoes runs at the Sadler’s Wells Theatre from Tuesday 6th December 2016.
