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.
