After sell-out seasons in 2017, Christopher Wheeldon’s madcap Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland© returns 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, cinematic score by Joby Talbot. With all the scale and spectacle of Broadway, this ballet will transport you to the heights of your imagination
Our production of Alice won two Helpmann Awards in 2018: Best Ballet and Best Female Dancer (for Principal Artist Ako Kondo).
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.
