Cinderella by Matthew Bourne and his New Adventures Company. 110 minutes PG rated.
From the same team that thrilled us in October with Swan Lake, comes a dance production of Cinderella set in a London ravaged by the Blitz.
A particular family is torn apart by the war, but among the devastation, the horror and the traumatised Forces there lurks an unearthly character in white.
Lez Brotherson’s breathtaking designs take us round various London landmarks, with many nods to such wartime films as ‘Brief Encounter’ and includes a wondrous transformation scene. This is perhaps Matthew Bourne’s most lyrically magical and romantic piece, full of his trademark combination of sassy humour, drama, rich characters and heartbreaking emotion. The music is Prokofiev’s haunting and lyrical score, with the ever present reminder of that fateful midnight. The company include Ashley Shaw, Andrew Monaghan, Alan Vincent, Michela Meazza and Liam Mower who we saw dance the tormented Prince in Swan Lake.
