Alice: first glimpse

07 December 2016 | By Rose Mulready

Christopher Wheeldon's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland© is a phantasmagoria of vivid colour and ingenious staging, full of cunning illusion. We gave Australia its first glimpse of the costumes when we took the ravening Queen of Hearts, her hapless knaves and a couple of playing cards to lark around on the chess board of Sydney's Hyde Park. Right now we're looking at the set models as we start to build the spectacular Bob Crowley sets. We can't wait to reveal this wonderful whimsical ballet to Melbourne and Sydney!
