It was Victoria Page in The Red Shoes whom I most dreamed of becoming as an adult.
The trouble with Vicki Page and the troubling aspect of assuming her persona was that she killed herself by jumping off a balcony onto a speeding train. ..
Yet, still, I went on buying dresses as close as possible to the teal shade of blue of the dress that Vicki Page wore the evening she climbed the steps to Lermontov’s villa and he told her he would create a dance for her. . .
(Years later I would wear an evening dress of the same color to the opening night of my first produced play.)
