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.

A specially commissioned recording played by a 60-piece orchestra will take the audience into the heart of Prokofiev's magnificent score.

Bourne's interpretation of the classic fairy tale.

“Stronger, tighter and more emotionally charged... Stunning, stylised sets... Radically rethinks and reinvents the fairy story.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“The triumphant return of Bourne’s radical retelling... Steeped in tenebrous nostalgia... Some reworking to tighten up the story.”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“A lush, big-screen glow... Bourne finds new resonances in the story, and in Prokofiev’s music... Magnificent designs.”

Zoe Anderson (Independent)

“Fans of Bourne will adore this... Brotherston's set designs... are particularly exquisite... Shaw: consistently brilliant.”

Broadway World (other reviewers)

“A truly inspired idea, for Prokofiev’s mighty score is as dark as it is lush, as melancholic as it is ecstatic.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Smart... in evoking the incendiary trauma of war... Every detail of the story feels rooted in history... Shaw: nuanced.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Monaghan strikes a fine balance between chivalry and damaged vulnerability... Shaw: beguiling... Visually absorbing.”

Luke Jennings (Observer)

“Blessed in Shaw... a dance-actress of subtlety, power and grace who can make a drab cardigan and skirt look like Dior... A blast”
