Matthew Bourne's Cinderella

Mar. 8, 2018
Time: 
18:30 — 23:00

I am writing to inform you of an exciting opportunity to watch Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella on Thursday 8th March 2018. The total cost of this trip, open to students in year 9-13, will include travel to and from the Theatre Royal in Nottingham and a ticket for the performance.

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.

With Lez Brotherston’s sumptuous 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 featuring a specially commissioned recording played by a 60 piece orchestra. 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.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students’ interested in the performing arts to enjoy an iconic performance by a unique choreographer.

Students will be collected from school at 6.30pm prompt to arrive at Nottingham Theatre Royal in time for the 7.30pm performance. The performance is expected to last around 2.5 hours, so the estimated return to school would be 11pm.
