News: Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is back on tour!

New Adventures are delighted to announce the tour dates for the much-anticipated return of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella.

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. 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.

With Lez Brotherston’s sumptuous costumes and sets, which won an Olivier Award for his original designs, and lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin, Cinderella  is designed by Paul Groothuis and features a specially commissioned recording played by a 60-piece orchestra.

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.


Cinderella plays at Sadler’s Wells from 9 December 2017 – 27 January 2018 before embarking on a UK-wide tour. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
