Synopsis

This Powell and Pressburger classic is widely considered to be one of the greatest films ever made and winner of three Oscars. The Red Shoes contains the first full-length English ballet especially written for the screen. Choreographed by Australian-born Sir Robert Helpmann of the Royal Ballet Company, and partially conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham, the story is based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale of a young girl who cannot stop thinking about her red dancing shoes. Talented young dancer, Victoria Page comes to join the greatest ballet talent of the world in the famous Lermontov Company. Boris Lermontov knows she will be a great ballerina and demands iron discipline and complete dedication of her life.
