Why go and see it?

The double Olivier award-winning smash hit returns!

A sell-out before its world premiere tour opened in 2016, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film returns after winning two Olivier Awards and dazzling audiences across the UK and the USA.

Production shot

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

Matthew Bourne works his magic. Blissful
- Daily Telegraph
A feast for the eye. The Red Shoes will be dancing for years to come
- Observer
Enthralling. Richly satisfying
- The Guardian

The Red Shoes will dazzle your senses and break your heart.

Based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale

Music by Bernard Herrmann.

In 1866, Liverpool Empire began its life as The Prince of Wales Theatre and Opera House and was run by gas light and steam power. The name changed to what it is today in 1895, so has had its name for over 100 years. It went through many refurbishments, before being bought by ATG and the theatre now stands about a quarter size bigger than it originally stood.
