A THRILLING AND EVOCATIVE LOVE STORY
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 RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.
Says Matthew Bourne “Cinderella is one of my most heart-felt works and a personal favourite amongst my re-imagined classic stories. I am delighted to have brought together this cast of current star performers”.
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 will be danced by Will Bozier, Andrew Monaghan and Dominic North.
The ballet will be performed in surround sound featuring a specially commissioned recording played by a 60 piece orchestra.
Matthew Bourne’s 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.
Cinderella is at The Bradford Alhambra from 8 to 12 May. To book call Box Office 01274 432000.
