Matthew Bourne’s – Edward Scissorhands @ Sadler’s Wells
January 11, 2024
Following our previous New Year visits to Sadler’s Wells for Matthew Bourne’s productions of Cinderella – 2018, Swan Lake – 2019, The Red Shoes – 2020, Nutcracker! – 2022 and most recently Sleeping Beauty in 2023, the same New Adventures team bring us his magical dance production of Edward Scissorhands, which has carved a place in the hearts of audiences world-wide since its premiere in 2005.
Based on the classic Tim Burton movie and featuring the hauntingly beautiful music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, Bourne and his New Adventures Company return to this witty, bittersweet story of an incomplete boy left alone in a strange new world.
In a castle high on a hill lives Edward; a boy created by an eccentric inventor. When his creator dies, he is left alone and unfinished with only scissors for hands until a kindly townswoman invites him to live with her suburban family. Can Edward find his place in the well-meaning community which struggles to see past his curious appearance to the innocence and gentleness within?
With the continued popularity and success of our trips to Sadler’s Wells for the Matthew Bourne productions, it is advisable to book early with previous years ending with a waiting list.
You will notice below that it is a stalls seat that is included. This is because they don’t discount any of the other seats. We have our usual allocation in the stalls which has served us very well on all our previous visits.
Offer Price – £92.50
to include return coach, stalls seat, all booking & admin fees and driver’s gratuity.
