New Adventures/Matthew Bourne's Cinderella
Matthew Bourne’s interpretation of the classic fairy tale has, at its heart, a true wartime romance.
A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.
Following the dazzling adaptation of The Red Shoes in 2017, New Adventures returns with one of its most popular and beloved productions, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella — a thrilling and evocative love story, set in London during the Second World War.
With Lez Brotherston’s sumptuous Olivier Award-winning designs, lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin and video and projection designs by Duncan McLean, Cinderella will be performed in surround sound, designed by Paul Groothuis. Matthew Bourne’s vivid storytelling has never been more heart-stopping and touching and will take the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score and the sights and sounds of war-torn London.
