New Adventures are delighted to announce North American tour dates and casting for Matthew Bourne’s double Olivier-Award winning production of The Red Shoes.
The production will make its American debut as part of a World Premiere tour, starting at the Ahmanson Theatre, Los Angeles on 15 September 2017, continuing to the Kennedy Center, Washington DC; Blumenthal Performing Arts, Charlotte and New York City Center.
The World Premiere tour of The Red Shoes opened at the Theatre Royal Plymouth in November 2016 ahead of a sold-out eight-week Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells, where it opened to rave reviews. The performances at Sadler’s Wells were the fastest selling in New Adventures history.
The original award-winning cast returns to recreate their critically acclaimed performances in these iconic roles. The role of Victoria Page, the girl who dreams of being a great dancer, immortalised on screen by Moira Shearer, was created by New Adventures leading lady, Ashley Shaw. New Adventures rising star, Cordelia Braithwaite, who has also received great praise for her interpretation will return for the USA Tour. For the run at New York City Center only, New York City Ballet star, Sara Mearns, will also play the role of Victoria Page making her New Adventures debut.
A beloved fairy-tale and Academy Award-winning movie, The Red Shoes has seduced audiences and inspired generations of dancers with its 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.
The Red Shoes tours the USA from 15 September – 5 November 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
