Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – a co-production between The Australian Ballet and the National Ballet of Japan – is full of colour, larger-than-life characters, and enough narrative twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Expect to be treated to an audiovisual feast for the senses: the delight and humour that made the original story so memorable takes on a new life with Christopher Wheeldon’s contemporary choreography coupled with eye-catching sets and costumes by Tony Award-winning designer Bob Crowley.
You'll see all the stars from the original Lewis Carroll classic, with a new vaudeville twist: the elusive White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, and the Queen of Hearts.
Equal parts absurd and laugh-out-loud funny, this stage adaptation doesn’t shy away from exploring the more unnerving elements of what happens when young Alice falls down a rabbit hole into a topsy-turvy new universe.
Australian audiences can now experience this hypnotising production, which won a prestigious Helpmann Award in 2018 and was first performed by London’s The Royal Ballet and The National Ballet of Canada, for themselves.
Runtime: 2 hrs, 40 mins including two intervals
