Christopher Wheeldon’s extravagant Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland returns to take audiences back down the rabbit hole.
Masterfully translated from Lewis Carroll’s beloved book, Wheeldon brings the humour and eccentricities of the original story to the ballet stage in a fantastical tale suitable for the whole family. Watch as The Queen of Hearts rampages around her court, the White Rabbit shimmies his tail and the Caterpillar sparkles in 16 crystal-covered pointe shoes.
Tony Award-winning designer Bob Crowley blends high-tech wizardry and traditional stage craft, weaving magic through puppetry and eye-catching design elements. Composer Joby Talbot captures Wonderland’s moods in an evocative score alive with Cheshire purrs and ticking clocks.
The Australian Ballet’s production of Alice won the 2018 Helpmann Award for Best Ballet and was nominated in five other categories, including Best Choreography, Best Scenic Design and Best Male and Female Dancer.
