Dir. Matthew Bourne | Sadler's Wells, London | Recorded 2017 | 110 min | PG
"A dazzling spectacle" The Times
"A big-hearted ballroom Blitz. Cinders sets the stage alight in Matthew Bourne's wartime revival" The Observer
"A gripping theatrical spectacle" The Guardian
Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is a thrilling and evocative love story set in London during the Second World War, recorded live in 2017 at Sadler's Wells in London. The internationally acclaimed choreographer’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.
The sights and sounds of war-torn London are recreated by Lez Brotherston’s Olivier Award-winning costumes and sets, lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin and surround sound designed by Paul Groothuis. 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.
