The dance production will take to the city venue's stage from February 27 to March 3 next year. It sees the classic fairytale set in World War Two, with Cinderella falling in love with a dashing young RAF pilot before they are parted by the horrors of The Blitz.

Matthew Bourne said: 'Cinderella is one of my most heartfelt works and a personal favourite amongst my re-imagined classic stories.

'I'm delighted to have brought together this cast of current star performers, experienced New Adventures veterans and exciting young talent. I'm thrilled to see another generation of company dancers take on this beloved production.'

Sharing the lead role will be Cordelia Braithwaite and Ashley Shaw fresh from playing Victoria Page in Matthew Bourne's previous production, The Red Shoes.
