Sadler's Wells, London

Exclusive Price

Dive deep into the world of Edward Scissorhands as imagined by the genius of Matthew Bourne. This spellbinding dance production has been captivating hearts globally since its debut in 2005.

Revisiting the iconic Tim Burton cinematic masterpiece, this adaptation flourishes with the ethereal compositions of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, painting each scene with musical magic. With Bourne at the helm, supported by his renowned New Adventures Company, this tale is not just retold but reimagined, bringing to life the poignant tale of a boy lost in an unfamiliar realm.

Perched in a castle atop a secluded hill is Edward, birthed from the imagination of an offbeat inventor. Tragically orphaned by his creator's demise and left with scissor blades as hands, his solitude is disrupted when a compassionate woman welcomes him into her suburban abode. But can a society, blinded by Edward's peculiar exterior, truly appreciate the pure soul concealed within?
