She's back! After sell-out seasons in 2017, Christopher Wheeldon's madcap, majestic Alice returns to Melbourne.
This is your chance to find out what all the buzz was about – or to revisit the rich detail and dizzy highs of this hot-ticket show.
Wheeldon has masterfully translated the humour and eccentricity of Lewis Carroll's beloved book to the ballet stage. The Queen of Hearts rampages around her court in a hilarious parody of the Rose Adage, the White Rabbit shimmies his tail, the Caterpillar is an exotic vision with 16 sparkly pointe shoes and the Cheshire Cat is a triumph of the puppeteer's art.
The Tony Award-winning designer Bob Crowley has created a marvellous blend of high-tech wizardry and old-fashioned show-business pizazz, referencing Victorian toy theatres, needlepoint and vaudeville amid darker and stranger visions. Composer Joby Talbot captures Wonderland's moods in an evocative score alive with Cheshire purrs and ticking clocks.
A very special Family Night will be held Monday 17 June from 5pm, where you can join in the fun of Family Night before the show. Arrive early to search out the wily White Rabbit and be rewarded with a special keepsake, or have your face painted with glitter and jewels worthy of Wonderland royalty, making your Alice experience one to remember.
