Matthew Bourne's Cinderella returns to the West End for Christmas 2017.

Part of the company's 30th anniversary celebrations and marking the 20th anniversary of Cinderella's West End appearance, this much loved interpretation of the classic fairytale returns to London's Sadler’s Wells theatre in a flurry of dance and glamour.

Set amidst the uncertainty of the London Blitz Cinderella meets her prince charming, a dashing young RAF pilot, just long enough to make a connection before they are torn apart. Prepare to be swept away by the magical choreography and glitz and glamour, and brought back to the stark realities of war ravaged London...

Matthew Bourne has used Prokofiev's 1940s score to bring the familiar tale of Cinderella new life. The 60 piece orchestra recording of Prokofiev's score is brought to life by Bourne's incredible choreography, the Olivier award winning costume/sets and lighting by Lez Brotherston and Neil Austin, respectively.

Matthew Bourne's Cinderella is a gorgeous reimagining of a classic love story with all the stunning storytelling and staging we have come to expect from Matthew Bourne. The perfect Christmas show for the whole family, celebrate the holidays in London with Cinderella.

Wonderful performance with the most amazing Set. The backdrop was fantastic and visually it was a joy to watch. Fantastic seats too and good price. Would definitely go again to Sadlers Wells and love Matthew Bourne productions.

Wonderful. I always enjoy Matthew Bourne's productions and know I'm in for a treat when I book tickets. Hope there will be another to enjoy!

Mrs Valerie Hodgson31st January

Wonderful visual and musical spectacle as expected from Matthew Bourne. However I felt it didn't quite have the edge of the Red Shoes. Partly our fault we didn't buy a programme - maybe this would have helped here as we were a bit confused by the story line at times.

Susan Claridge29th January

Amazing, loved it. Had a wonderful evening

Chris Roberts29th January

We love Matthew Bourne and try to see all his shows whenever they appear in London. Cinderella was a particularly good one and really benefited from the move to the 2nd world war. The stage sets were clever and believable and there were no weak links in the dance troupe. All helped along by an orchestral soundtrack which was beautifully recorded and executed. It would be very difficult to find any faults in such a wonderful performance.

Love every bits of it! My only problem was I booked the tickets late and didn't manage to get decent seats. Regardless, I still enjoyed the show.

i have never been to a ballet before, WOW. it was a brilliant adaption of the classic story. the setting was so powerful and the cast made the experience compelling. i would highly recommend

PB28th January

Good but not standing ovation great - fun, with feel of pantomime but there’s something about long dresses and dancing in shoes that makes it feel more like ballroom dancing than ballet...

maggie buckley27th January

An enthralling performance with beguiling character performances and dazzling dancers. The angel on stage last evening was breathtaking and I couldn’t keep my eyes off him.

Rebecca Michael26th January

Mrs R Steiner26th January

I was disappointed there was not a live orchestra

Rob26th January

An interesting and exciting show. Music score improved after the first act. Music just a little too loud for my liking.
