WhatsOnStage on Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella

Following the sold-out success of The Red Shoes, New Adventures return with one of their most beloved productions, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella – a thrilling love story set in London during the Second World War.

Matthew Bourne’s vivid and touching interpretation of the classic fairy tale has, at its heart, a true war-time romance. A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.

Cinderella takes the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score, and the sights and sounds of war-torn London, with surround sound designed by Paul Groothuis, a specially commissioned recording of a 60 piece orchestra, Lez Brotherston’s Olivier Award winning designs and lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin.

Running time: About 2 hours and 30 minutes (no interval)
