Christmas 2020

A Christmas Wish

A Christmas Wish is a short, stirring and poignant film devised and directed by Matthew Bourne. The film includes some of the most memorable duets from our classic shows including Edward ScissorhandsCinderella and Nutcracker! performed on the stage of Sadler’s Wells. 

As the dancers take a bow to an empty auditorium, with it comes a sense of hope for 2021 when we will be back on stage in front of our much missed loyal audiences. 

Featuring New Adventures principal dancers Cordelia BraithwaiteParis FitzpatrickGlenn GrahamAndy MonaghanLiam MowerDominic North and Ashley Shaw, and one of the company’s brightest young talents Harrison Dowzell, the duets will vividly animate the space with memories of shows past. 

New Adventures partners once again with TEA Films to bring these beautiful and magical duets to life on film.
