The traditional fairytale of a servant girl who meets a dashing prince is retold in a touching new ballet directed by an internationally acclaimed choreographer.

Matthew Bourne has become famous for his adaptations of traditional ballets, and Cinderella is no different.

The ‘beloved’ fairytale has been retold in a number of ways over the years, both on stage and screen, and this one is no different, taking the audience to 1940s London during the World War Two.

The thrilling and evocative love story will see a chance meeting between Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, who spend just enough time together to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.

Ashley Shaw and Cordelia Braithwaite, who played leading lady Victoria Page in Red Shoes, will also return to the Hippodrome to share the title role.

Bourne said: “Cinderella is one of my most heartfelt works and a personal favourite amongst my re-imagined classic stories.

“I am thrilled to see another generation of company dancers take on this beloved production.”

Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella will be at the Bristol Hippodrome, in St Augustines Parade, from March 20-24 at 7.30pm each night. There will be 2.30pm matinees on March 22 and 24.

Tickets, priced £16.50-68.90, are available from www.atgtickets.com/shows or 08448 717627.

The Times has teamed up with the theatre to offer two lucky readers a pair of tickets to the show on March 21.

This competition will close at 10am on March 16.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.
