of New Adventures’ most loved productions, Matthew Bourne’s
“Cinderella” is a thrilling and evocative love story set in London during the Second World War.
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.

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

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.
