K. V. Turley writes on “The Red Shoes” and the Artistic Vocation: A Cautionary, Cinematic Tale.
Just the other day I saw a news item about a proposed new ballet production based on the classic film, The Red Shoes. (The fact that another ballet version was tried on Broadway in 1983 and proved a financial disaster seems not to have deterred the producers.) Given the movie’s subject matter these attempts to turn the movie into a ballet does not surprise me. What does surprise me, however, is how few see within its frames a warning as to dangers of the artistic vocation.
