Win tickets - Cinderella in Bristol

PUBLISHED: 08:47 28 April 2011




A MAGICAL tale will take to the stage in Bristol next month.

For the first time ever, New Adventures brings a new production of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella to The Bristol Hippodrome from May 17-21.

It is a thrilling and evocative journey through London during World War Two.

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, this brand new production is created to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the London Blitz.

It features design by Lez Brotherston who won an Olivier award for his original designs, and new lighting designs by Neil Austin.

Cinderella will be performed in Surround Sound, designed by Paul Groothius. Featuring a specially commissioned new recording of the score, New Adventures will create a cinematic experience, taking the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent music and the sound world of war-torn London.

Cinderella is both a tribute and a testament to the spirit of London during a time when every second counted and lives were changed forever.

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