The Red Shoes

Ahmanson Theatre
135 North Grand Ave Los Angeles

A tale of passion and obsession, Matthew Bourne's stylish and audacious new ballet The Red Shoes was exalted as "a feast for the eyes" by The Guardian, while The Daily Telegraph praised its magical qualities, declaring it "blissful." Bourne's thrilling adaptation of the Oscar-winning 1948 film (which was itself based on a tale by Hans Christian Andersen) is the story of a ballerina forced to choose between an affair of the heart and her rapturous love of dance. Featuring music written by composer Bernard Hermann for Citizen Kane and three other classic films, you won't want to miss The Red Shoes when it enjoys its American premiere at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.

"...At just under two hours (with intermission), the story plays out rapidly from locale to locale, under some technical brilliance, starting with the overall production design of Duncan McLean, with the fluid set and costume design of Lez Brotherston, lit by a useful lighting design of Paule Constable, and a fine sound design of Paul Groothuis."

"...Matthew Bourne makes another triumphant return to the Ahmanson Theatre with his latest feat of dance brilliance, the American Premiere of The Red Shoes, Sir Matthew's breathtakingly imaginative reinvention of the British film classic that made Moira Shearer a star."

"...Cough up the money and buy a ticket to The Red Shoes! Performances at the Ahmanson play until October 1 only. You will be amazed and delighted by this spectacular entertainment. No one does it quite like Matthew Bourne."

"...On opening night, the lead character of Victoria Price, a young dancer obsessed by a pair of red toe shoes, and her own personal Diaghilev, impresario Boris Lermontov, were gorgeously danced by Ashley Shaw and Sam Archer, while her romantic pas de deux with Dominic North proved show-stopping every time. Still, it was Liam Mower, who won the Olivier Award as the title character in the original production of Billy Elliott the Musical in London, who left the most indelible impression as the Ballet Lermontov's leading dancer Ivan Boleslawsky."
