Matthew Bourne’s double Olivier Award-winning adaptation of the classic Powell and Pressburger film is set to a new score arranged by Terry Davies using the mesmerizing music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, with sumptuous designs by Lez Brotherston (set and costumes), Paule Constable (lighting), and Paul Groothuis (sound).

Victoria Page lives to dance, but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion. For the New York premiere, New Adventures star Ashley Shaw, who originated the role of Victoria Page, and New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns, debuting as a guest star with the company, alternate in the role. American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Marcelo Gomes and New Adventures dancer Dominic North share the role of composer Julian Craster, and Sam Archer is Boris Lermontov, the iconic Svengali-like impresario.
