Matthew Bourne's Cinderella

Following the critical success of The Red Shoes, New Adventures return to The Lowry in March with one of their most popular and beloved productions, Matthew Bourne's Cinderella.
  • Venue: The Lyric Theatre

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

Matthew Bourne’s vivid and touching 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. 

Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella takes the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score, and the sights and sounds of war-torn London, with surround sound designed by Paul Groothuis, and a specially commissioned recording of a 60 piece orchestra, Lez Brotherston’s Olivier Award winning designs and lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin.
