Following the dazzling adaptation of The Red Shoes in 2017, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures returns with one of its most popular and beloved productions, Cinderella—a thrilling twist on the classic fairy tale.
Set in London during World War II, 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 Blitz. Matthew Bourne’s vivid storytelling has never been more heart-stopping. 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.
