Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella returns Christmas 2017

First Published 5 December 2016, Last Updated 6 December 2019

Matthew Bourne, New Adventures and Re:Bourne have announced a year-long celebration of work to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the company, including the much-anticipated return of Cinderella to Sadler’s Wells for Christmas 2017.

The celebrations begin with Matthew’s first new production in four years, The Red Shoes, which opens at Sadler’s Wells this week and is the twelfth full length production in the New Adventures repertoire.

Matthew then returns to his roots with Early Adventures, a programme of early works that launched his career, including The Infernal Galop, Town And Country, Spitfire and Watch With Mother. The tour begins on 2 February 2017 and plays through to 12 April 2017, visiting Sadler’s Wells between 3-8 April 2017.

The cast includes New Adventures favourites Reece Causton, Tom Clark, Daniel Collins, Sophia Hurdley, Mari Kamata, Jamie McDonald and Edwin Ray, as well as Joao Carolino and Paris Fitzpatrick who are making their New Adventures debut.

The year will conclude with the much-anticipated return of one of New Adventures’ most loved productions Cinderella to Sadler’s Wells for Christmas, following its sell-out season in 2010.  2017 marks 20 years since the production first premiered in the West End. Tickets will go on sale Monday 6 March 2017.

Throughout their anniversary year, New Adventures will play over 300 performances at 34 UK venues, and will perform in six countries across the world. This will include nine weeks at Sadler’s Wells and nearly 40 weeks of touring elsewhere. The productions will feature over 90 dancers.

Re:Bourne, the charitable arm of New Adventures, will be continuing to build on its ground-breaking projects in schools, at Summer Festivals and in care homes for people living with Dementia, while the 2017-2018 New Adventures Choreographer Award will open for applications early in 2017.

Matthew Bourne said today: “I’m delighted that we will be delivering such a busy programme of touring productions and projects in our thirtieth anniversary year.  After three decades New Adventures continues to revisit, revise and refresh much-loved repertoire as well as making new work for audiences across the UK and around the world.

“Since 2008 Re:Bourne has exceeded all my expectations in terms of the breadth and reach of work it delivers and I’m thrilled that 2017 will be such a true reflection of everything we do best.”
