A Mad Idea Brought To Life
Alice In Wonderland? A ballet? Are you mad?
Most everyone's mad here.'
Can you imagine the Queen of Hearts tippy-toeing across the stage as she plays a game of croquet? Sounds like a mad sight to me. And I guess that is exactly what it should be.
Lewis Carroll's children's novel about Alice's journey to a nonsensical wonderland is one of the best and most imaginative pieces of writing in history. And to turn it into a ballet requires no less innovation.
Innovation is exactly what Christopher Wheeldon must have had to choreograph this exciting production. The show will be performed at the Royal Opera House between March the 15th and the 13th of April. General tickets go on sale from the 15th of January, but Friends of Covent Gardens can book now.
There are evening performances on Mondays to Fridays at 7.30pm, or 7pm on Saturdays, with 12.30pm matinees.
