Film Night. Miami Beach Cinematheque screens the dance classic The Red Shoes.
Directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger/1948/133 minutes
Moira Shearer, Anton Walbrook, Marius Goring, Robert Helpmann
Beautifully restored in 2009, the legendary work by Powell and Pressburger is seen again in all its glory and magnificent color. The Red Shoes is centered around a ballet performance of Hans Christian Andersenâ€šs dark fairy tale. A ballerina (Moira Shearer) is torn between her love for a ballet director (Anton Walbrook) and a composer (Marius Goring). Impressive choreography by Robert Helpmann and performances by the Lermontov Ballet Company.
Professional ballet dancers will be on hand to discuss the hard personal choices their profession demands.
There is limited seating for this event, so buy your tickets in advance!
