In London, during the Second World War, Cinderella meets a dashing young RAF pilot – a chance meeting which leads to a magical night. Together just long enough to fall in love, the two are parted by the horrors of the Blitz. Among the obstacles to their reunion is Cinderella’s sinister stepmother and her horrid step-sisters, but the Angel weaves his magic to protect our heroine… will true love win out?
This dance reinterpretation of the classic fairy tale features heart-stopping choreography and vivid, truthful characters. Having astonished audiences in the West End for many years, the magic of the stage show is captured on the big screen with a specially commissioned recording played by a 60-piece orchestra.
Matthew Bourne’s storytelling has never been more heart-stopping. Cinderella will take you into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score, and on a magical fairytale adventure.
