|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until March 13, 2021


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.

Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film stars Ashley Shaw as Victoria Page, Adam Cooper as Boris Lermontov, Dominic North as Julian Craster, Michela Meazza as Irina Boronskaya, Liam Mower as Ivan Boleslawsky and Glenn Graham as Grischa Ljubov.

Set to the achingly romantic music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, The Red Shoes is orchestrated by Terry Davies and played by the New Adventures Orchestra, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis and projection from Duncan McLean.

Matthew Bourne’s production of The Red Shoes was filmed live at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in 2019.

On demand access for Kennedy Center patrons is $10. Matthew Bourne’s Production of The Red Shoes is an on demand streaming presentation on Center Theatre Group’s Digital Stage. You will be re-directed to their website to purchase tickets and to watch the digital performance.
