New Adventures are delighted to announce the tour dates for the much-anticipated return of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella.
The tour opens on Saturday 9 December 2017 at Sadler’s Wells where it plays a seven-week season until Saturday 27 January 2018. See below for a list of confirmed venues.
One of New Adventures’ most loved productions Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is a thrilling and evocative love story, set in London during the Second World War. Matthew Bourne’s 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 vivid story telling has never been more heart-stopping and touching, and will take the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score, and the sights and sounds of war-torn London.
2017 marks 20 years since Cinderella first premiered in the West End and New Adventures’ 16th consecutive Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells. Cinderella concludes a year-long celebration of work to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of New Adventures.
