[Before the curtain goes up on the premiere]



Livingstone 'Livy' Montagne:
You're a magician, Boris. To have produced all this in three weeks, and from nothing.



Boris Lermontov:
My dear Livy, not even the best magician in the world can produce a rabbit out of a hat if there is not already a rabbit in the hat.

[Describing the ballet of the Red Shoes]



Boris Lermontov:
"The Ballet of The Red Shoes" is from a fairy tale by Hans Andersen. It is the story of a young girl who is devoured with an ambition to attend a dance in a pair of Red Shoes. She gets the shoes and goes to the dance. For a time, all goes well and she is very happy. At the end of the evening she is tired and wants to go home, but the Red Shoes are not tired. In fact, the Red Shoes are never tired. They dance her out into the street, they dance her over the mountains and valleys, through fields and forests, through night and day. Time rushes by, love rushes by, life rushes by, but the Red Shoes go on.



Julian Craster:
What happens in the end?



Boris Lermontov:
Oh, in the end, she dies.

Boris Lermontov: How would you define ballet, Lady Neston?
Lady Neston: Well, one might call it the poetry of motion perhaps, or...
Boris Lermontov: One might. But for me it is a great deal more. For me it is a religion. And one doesn't really care to see one's religion practised in an atmosphere... such as this.More Movie: The Red Shoes [1948] Movie: The Red Shoes [1948] quotes [07/29/2005 12:07:00]
