Pantomime with a twist
The performance of pantomime during the Christmas season is one of Britain’s great traditions. But this season one of the annual favourites, Cinderella, is a ballet with a difference - set in London during the Blitz. Choreographer Matthew Bourne takes great leaps – pardon the pun - of imagination and has presented a war-time Cinderella, a bespectacled, shabbily-dressed and unloved mouse in a large family dominated by a murderous stepmother.
