About this title


The shiny red shoes kept on dancing. There was nothing Karen could do. Then the old woman told her to pray!

From Library Journal:

Starlets have often attributed their initial artistic inspiration to Powell and Pressburger's 1948 classic film, The Red Shoes. This new edition of the enduring tale is similar to the Romeo and Juliet story, except the scoundrel is the impresario of the Ballets Lermontov. Under the guidance of Boris Lermontov, the young artists blossom. Julian, a budding musician, composes a ballet for an aspiring ballerina, Vicky. The ballet is a tremendous success and becomes Vicky's signature piece. As the young artists achieve fame and recognition, they fall deeply in love and marry...against the wishes of their mentor. Subsequently driven from the company, they strive to balance devotion to their art with their personal relationship. The writing style is elegant and evocative of the artistic mindset and lifestyle, beautifully depicting the passion and commitment felt by artists. Recommended for public libraries.
