Oundle Cinema screens Matthew Bourne’s magical Cinderella

Oundle Cinema brushes off its dancing shoes to help audiences sit back and enjoy Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella to complete the festive period in style.

After the whirlwind of Christmas festivities, Oundle Cinema presents the opportunity to re-experience the acclaimed performance of Cinderella, screening at 4pm on Thursday 27th December at The Stahl Theatre.

First performed in 1997, this encore screening offers audiences the ability to catch this production again. Using Prokofiev’s ballet score, choreographer Matthew Bourne sets the classical fairy tale Cinderella in London during the Second World War, and tells his evocative story of Cinderella and her young pilot falling in love before being parted by the Blitz.

Bourne recreates the sights and sounds of war-torn London in “a gripping theatrical spectacle”, with the help of the Olivier award-winning designer Lez Brotherston’s costumes and sets.

Tickets are available from the Oundle Box Office, New Street or from www.oundlefestival.org.uk
