After sell-out seasons in 2017, Christopher Wheeldon’s madcap Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland© is coming to Brisbane in 2019.
Wheeldon translates the wit and charm of Lewis Carroll’s story into delightful dance, framed by extravagant sets, magnificent costumes and extraordinary music. Wonderland has never looked more magical thanks to this ingenious production's puppetry, projections and eye-bending illusions. Join Alice as she meets a twitchy White Rabbit, a tap-dancing Mad Hatter and a hot-tempered Queen of Hearts in this family-friendly adventure.
Experience breathtaking visuals from Tony Award-winning designer Bob Crowley and a colourful score by Joby Talbot, performed live by Queensland Symphony Orchestra. With all the scale and spectacle of Broadway, this ballet will transport you to into the depths of your imagination
This production was honoured with two awards at the 2018 Helpmann Awards for Best Ballet, and Principal Artist Ako Kondo received the Helpmann Award for Best Female Dancer in a Ballet, Dance or Physical Theatre Production for her unforgettable performance as Alice.
Tickets go on sale at 11am Friday 20 July. It’s time to fall down the rabbit hole – don’t be late for this very important date!
...one fantastical episode after another in a heady rush of color and movement.
