Event description
Following the sold-out and critical success of double Olivier Award-winning The Red Shoes, New Adventures return 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, which forms part of the company’s 30th anniversary celebrations.

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 *****.

With Lez Brotherston’s sumptuous costumes and sets, which won an Olivier Award for his original designs, and lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin, Cinderella will be performed in Surround Sound, designed by Paul Groothuis and featuring a specially commissioned recording played by a 60 piece orchestra. 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.

A fairytale for the festive season, in Cendrillon, Jules Massenet gives the story of Cinderella a perfect French operatic form with plenty of wit and style. This opera reveals Massenet at his most inventive and highlights his gift as a comic composer.

Based on Charles Perrault’s fairytale, in this opera, Cinderella has a stepmother and two stepsisters and the Fairy Godmother who helps her to go to the palace ball. However, after midnight, the opera takes a different turn from the original tale: upset by the hateful suggestions of her stepmother and stepsisters, Cinderella runs away from home. Feverish, she arrives in the Fairy Godmother’s magic forest and meets the Prince once more. He recognises the beautiful, mysterious girl from the ball and offers her his heart.

Months later, when we catch up with Cinderella again, her father has convinced her that it was all a dream. But, when the Prince is travelling the length and breadth of the country to find the owner of the glass slipper, he recognises Cinderella and she returns his love.

Cendrillon is a thrilling work, alive with drama, humour and even a touch of bitter sarcasm. It takes us to a fanciful time and place, with vividly drawn characters, magical love, and enchanting dreams – plus the music is as appealing, and dreamily expressive, as anything Massenet ever composed.

This production will be sung in French with surtitles.
