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.
