More2Screen is delighted to announce that Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella will be screening in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on Tuesday 15 May at 7pm. This special cinema event will be followed by a live by satellite Q&A with Matthew Bourne.
Matthew Bourne commented: “Cinderella is one of my most heartfelt works and a personal favourite amongst my re-imagined classic stories. I’m thrilled that this beautifully filmed production will be in cinemas nationwide on 15 May and that the screening will be followed by a live Q&A. I’m very much looking forward to talking directly to cinema audiences on the night.”
Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is a thrilling and evocative love story set in London during the Second World War. The internationally acclaimed choreographer’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, danced by Ashley Shaw, and her dashing young RAF pilot Andrew Monaghan, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz. A talented cast of New Adventures veterans and exciting young dancers perform in the production filmed live at Sadler’s Wells, including Liam Mower as the Angel, Michela Meazza as the Step-Mother and Alan Vincentas Cinderella’s Father.
The sights and sounds of war-torn London are recreated by Lez Brotherston’s Olivier Award-winning costumes and sets, lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin, video and projection designs by Duncan McLean, and surround sound designed by Paul Groothuis. 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.
Filmed live at Sadler’s Wells, London, in December 2017, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is directed for the screen by Ross MacGibbon and produced by Illuminations.
