Los Angeles, Calif. – Get ready for an all new take on the classic fairy tale – the Ahmanson Theatre is proud to present Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella! Taking the classic story and splicing it into a wartime setting, this show is an all new emotional experience with a familiar thread. Enchanting, strange, subversive and utterly beautiful, this is the must-watch performance of the year.
Matthew Bourne transforms the classic fairy tale into a wartime romance with a twist of Hollywood glamour. 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 Blitz.
Following the dazzling smash hit The Red Shoes in 2017, New Adventures returns to the Ahmanson with one of their most beloved dance theatre productions, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella. Performed to Prokofiev’s magnificent score, this new production comes alive with heart-stopping choreography, vivid theatrical storytelling, and sumptuous award-winning scenic and costume designs that will transport audiences to the heart of war-torn London for a timeless story of the power of love.
