Following the sold-out and critical success of The Red Shoes and Sleeping Beauty, New Adventures return to the Theatre Royal Nottingham 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 fairytale, 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 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.
