Live from the The Royal Ballet, Covent Garden

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Christopher Wheeldon’s production provides an explosion of colour, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography.

Alice encounters a cast of extraordinary characters, from the highly strung Queen of Hearts - who performs an hilarious send-up of The Sleeping Beauty’s famous Rose Adage - to a playing card corps de ballet, and a tap-dancing Mad Hatter.  But the ballet does not avoid the darker undercurrents of Lewis Carroll’s story: a nightmarish kitchen, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat and the unhinged tea party are all here, bringing together world-class dance with enchanting family entertainment.
