Book to see Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella, New Victoria Theatre, Woking
The much-anticipated New Adventures’ tour of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella visits the New Victoria Theatre, Woking from Tuesday 19th – Saturday 23rd June.
Following on from the success of The Red Shoes last year, Matthew Bourne said, “Cinderella is one of my most heartfelt works and a personal favourite amongst my re-imagined classic stories. I’m delighted to have brought together this cast of current star performers, experienced New Adventures veterans and exciting young talent. I’m thrilled to see another generation of Company dancers take on this beloved production”.
Fresh from their triumph playing Victoria Page in The Red Shoes, the role of Cinderella will be performed by Cordelia Braithwaite and Ashley Shaw. Whilst Cinderella’s heroic Pilot, ‘Harry’, will be performed by Will Bozier, Andrew Monaghan and Dominic North. Paris Fitzpatrick and Liam Mower share the role of ‘The Angel’ (Cinderella’s ‘Fairy Godfather’).
Cinderella, one of New Adventures’ most loved productions, is a thrilling and evocative love story, set in London during the Second World War. 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 a 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 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 features a specially commissioned orchestral recording. Matthew Bourne’s vivid storytelling 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.
