One of the most ‘heartfelt’ fairytales ever told will be brought to life before the audiences’ very eyes at the Bristol Hippodrome this month.

Acclaimed award-winning choreographer Matthew Bourne will return to the West Country venue, after his successful stint last year with The Red Shoes, to bring a new remake of Cinderella to the stage.

Cinderella has been retold in a number of ways over the years, both on stage and screen, and this one is no different, taking the audience to 1940s London during the Second World War.

The thrilling and evocative love story will see a chance meeting between Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, who spend just enough time together to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.

Ashley Shaw and Cordelia Braithwaite, who played leading lady Victoria Page in The Red Shoes, will return to the theatre to share the title role.

Bourne said: “Cinderella is one of my most heartfelt works and a personal favourite among 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 am thrilled to see another generation of company dancers take on this beloved show.”

Bourne’s Cinderella will be at the Bristol Hippodrome, in St Augustines Parade, from March 20-24 at 7.30pm. There will be an additional 2.30pm matinee on March 22 and 24.

Tickets, priced £16.50-68.90, are available from or 08448 717627.

The Mercury has teamed up with the theatre to offer two lucky readers a pair of tickets to the show on March 21.

This competition will close at 10am on March 16.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.
