Book Matthew Bourne's Cinderella Tickets at the Sadlers Wells, London

About Matthew Bourne's Cinderella

Sadler’s Wells Resident Company Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures returns with a brand new production of the all-time classic fairytale Cinderella.

Set in London during the Second World War, Matthew Bourne's interpretation of Prokofiev 's haunting score has, at its heart, a true wartime 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.
First seen in the West End in 1997, but now completely revised in this brand new production featuring Lez Brotherston’s Olivier award winning designs, and new lighting by Neil Austin. The production also features sensational sound design by Paul Groothius, which takes the audience into the heart of Prokofiev ’s magnificent score and the aural world of war-torn London. This will be the first production presented by New Adventures to have a specially commissioned recording of the score in Surround Sound.

Bourne's vivid storytelling has never been more heart-stopping and touching, creating a unique and unforgettable depiction of a familiar and beloved fable.

Bourne has made a war time story accessible to a post war generation…Cinderella has complexity, subtlety and surprises and is a worthy sequel to Swan lake - THE EVENING STANDARD

The music, with its heavy industrial rhythms and ominous orchestration, has always had an intractable harshness for a fairy tale ballet.  Bourne makes us hear it as a wartime score, exploiting all the elements that many other choreographers try to ignore - THE GUARDIAN

Heartbreaking….One leaves the theatre talking of Bourne’s extraordinary overlap of dream and realism: an overlap that takes one back to the core of the Cinderella story and Prokofiev’s score - THE FINANCIAL TIMES
