Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella

About Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella

Following the sold-out and critical success of The Red Shoes and Sleeping Beauty, New Adventures return to the Festival Theatre with one of their most popular and beloved productions, Matthew Bourne’s CINDERELLA – a thrilling and evocative love story, set in London during the Second World War..

Matthew Bourne’s 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 young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.

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 story telling 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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
