Without pausing for breath, we’re thrilled to share that New Adventures has three mentions overall in The Stage’s top 100 for 2020.
In this years list of the most influential people working in the theatre and performing arts industry, we’re elated to see that New Adventures has climbed to spot number 17 (26 last year), with special recognition to our Artistic Director, Matthew Bourne, Group Managing Director, Robert Noble and the grand return of our two time Olivier Award winning The Red Shoes.
"The year started on a huge high for Bourne after he was honoured at the Olivier Awards for his outstanding body of work and contribution to the arts. This continued with the premiere of his eagerly awaited and radically staged Romeo and Juliet, which earned him a nomination for best modern choreography at The National Dance Awards. Through his Company, with Noble as group managing director, Bourne also launched a tour of The Red Shoes, including a season at Sadler’s Wells, while his much loved Swan Lake also toured the UK and was broadcast in cinemas."
The collective work of the New Adventures team has seen some phenomenal announcements, in particular to our World Premiere production of Romeo and Juliet.
