RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN’S CINDERELLA MOVED TO 2022

Lyndon Terracini for Opera Australia and John Frost for Crossroads Live today announced that due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, they have made the difficult decision to move the Tony® Award-winning Broadway production of Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella into 2022.

New dates have been secured at the Sydney Lyric Theatre from October next year. Cinderella 2021 ticketholders will be contacted regarding ticket exchanges in the next few days via email from either Ticketmaster or Opera Australia.

Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella is the Tony Award ® winning Broadway musical from the creators of The Sound of Music that delighted Broadway audiences with its surprisingly contemporary take on the classic tale.

This lush production features incredible orchestrations, jaw-dropping transformations and all the moments you love—the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more—plus some surprising new twists! Audiences will get the chance to  relive some of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved songs, including In “My Own Little Corner”, “Impossible/It’s Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago”.

Anyone interested in purchasing tickets to the 2022 production should waitlist at cinderellamusical.com.au to be first in line to purchase once tickets are on sale to the general public.

Filmed late last year at Sadlers Wells in London Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures brings a magnificent, spectacular revival of CINDERELLA to the screen. It transfers marvellously from stage to cinema.

Created in 1997, Bourne has transposed the fairy tale to Blitz – torn 1940’s London, with the prince becoming a dashing but traumatised RAF pilot, a wickedly evil stepmother, horrid step sisters, a creepy rest of the family and a guardian angel instead of a fairy godmother. (The angel has a motorbike instead of a transformed pumpkin for transport to the ball).Those of us familiar with his works will pick up choreographic references to Bourne’s Swan Lake, The Car Man, Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty , Lord of the Flies etc. Continue reading MATTHEW BOURNE’S NEW ADVENTURES OF CINDERELLA
