Matthew Bourne transforms the beloved fairy tale and award-winning movie into a magical ballet. Read More


Catch the tale of The Red Shoes, brought to life on the stage for the first time by Matthew Bourne, for an eight-week Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells.

The ballet follows the story of 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.

Taking on the leading role is Australian dancer and New Adventures principal, Ashley Shaw, who has already performed in major ballets, including Nutcracker!, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and many more.

The world premiere is set to a new score arranged by Terry Davies using the music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann.
