On Thursday 12th April, 26 pupils watched the critically acclaimed Matthew Bourne Cinderella at Liverpool Empire Theatre.
Set in London during the Second World War, Matthew Bourne’s interpretation is a true war-time romance following Cinderella’s chance meeting with a wounded RAF pilot whilst enduring loss and tragedy during the Blitz. It was notably darker than the Disney version!
Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the ballet commenting on the quality of the dancing and the delicate portrayal of the story by the leads.
It was a fantastic show and a great introduction to ballet for some of our pupils who had never been to the ballet before.
