 New Adventures are delighted to announce the tour dates for the much-anticipated return of Matthew Bourne’s “CINDERELLA”. The tour opened on Saturday 9 December 2017 at Sadler’s Wells, with dates at the Festival Theatre Edinburgh in June 2018.

 Matthew Bourne said today: “Cinderella is one of my most heartfelt works and a personal favourite amongst my re-imagined classic stories. I’m delighted to have brought together this cast of current star performers, experienced New Adventures veterans and exciting young talent. I’m thrilled to see another generation of Company dancers take on this beloved production”

 Fresh from their triumph playing Victoria Page in “The Red Shoes”, the role of ‘Cinderella’ will be performed by Cordelia Braithwaite and Ashley Shaw.

 Cinderella’s heroic Pilot, ‘Harry’, will be performed by Will BozierAndrew Monaghan and Dominic North.

 ‘The Angel’ (Cinderella’s ‘Fairy GodFather’) will be danced by Paris Fitzpatrick and Liam Mower.

 ‘Sybil’, Cinderella’s Step-Mother, is performed by Madelaine BrennanMichela Meazza (London only) and Anjali Mehra.

 ‘Robert’, Cinderella’s Father is performed by Alan Vincent and Dan Wright.

 Cinderella’s Step Brothers and Sisters and the people of 1940’s London complete the cast: Steph BillersJoão CarolinoReece CaustonJackson Fisch; Glenn Graham; Sophia Hurdley; Jack Jones; Nicole Kabera; Kate Lyons; Jamie McDonald; Stephen Murray (Former Central School of Ballet/New Adventures Student Associate), Danny Reubens; Katie Webb and Seren Williams.

 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.

 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” will be performed in Surround Sound, designed by Paul Groothuis and featuring a specially commissioned recording played by a 60-piece orchestra.  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.

 New Adventures & Re:Bourne is a national portfolio organisation supported using public funds by Arts Council England.
