Cinderella, ballet

Last night I was fortunate enough to go and see Matthew Bourne's ballet Cinderella.  Set in the London blitz of 1940 it was an amazingly different interpretation of this ballet and such fun to watch.  There was so much going on on stage that I am sure I missed half the action and the fact that Cinderella was really plain was wonderful.

 Here is the angel Fairy Godmother

Cinders off to the Cafe de Paris in the motorcycle sidecar
Wicked stepmother, her hat was a shoe, very appropriate!

The Fairy Godmother was a white angel and when Cinders went to the Cafe de Paris she went in a motorcycle sidecar.  All the different story telling made this a wonderful treat to watch.
I was also lucky enough to go with  a very good friend Lyn who made the whole event so much fun.  It is amazing what you can chat about with a really close friend and it made the journey fly by.  185 miles round trip and so worth it.

I would love to have a dress like Cinders just for 1 night
