Creative Oundle is delighted to present another of Matthew Bourne’s critically acclaimed ballet productions as part of it’s Cinema programme. 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 richly romantic music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, The Red Shoes is orchestrated by Terry Davies.  Matthew Bourne’s The Red Shoes was filmed live at Sadler’s Wells in London.

World-famous dancer, actor and choreographer, Adam Cooper, plays the iconic role of Svengali-like Impresario ‘Boris Lermontov’. The much-loved star, Ashley Shaw, reprises her award-winning role of ‘Victoria Page’ having first created it for the 2016 World Premiere Season.  Dominic North dances the role of struggling composer ‘Julian Craster’, with whom Victoria falls in love.  The filmed cast also includes other celebrated dancers: Michela Meazza as the Prima Ballerina of Ballet Lermontov ‘Irina Boronskaya’, Liam Mower as Premier Danseur ‘Ivan Boleslawsky’ and Glenn Graham as the Ballet Master ‘Grischa Ljubov’.
