New Adventures are delighted to be bringing the much-anticipated return of Matthew Bourne’s “CINDERELLA” to Liverpool. The production plays the Liverpool Empire from Tuesday 10th – Saturday 14th April 2018 as part of a UK tour.

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.
