War-Time Cinderella

New Adventures are delighted to present the much-anticipated return of Matthew Bourne’s War-Time Cinderella to Manchester at The Lowry from Tuesday 13th to Saturday 17th March.

It’s one of New Adventures’ most loved productions and 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.

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, and the sights and sounds of war-torn London.
