Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Dress Rehearsal
December 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE … TO A WORLD OF COLOUR, FUN AND FANTASY
ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND©
The Friends of The Australian Ballet Dress Rehearsal
Follow Alice through the looking glass into a world of colour, fun and fantasy in this dazzling international extravaganza.
Witness as Christopher Wheeldon translates the wit and charm of Lewis Carroll’s story into dance, with extravagant sets and costumes and an extraordinary score. Wonderland comes to life with puppetry, eye-bending illusions and playful costumes as Alice meets a twitchy White Rabbit, tap-dancing Mad Hatter and a tyrannical Red Queen.
With the spectacle of Broadway, this ballet will transport you to into the depths of your imagination.
“…one fantastical episode after another in a heady rush of color and movement.”
Puppetry and projections are spectacularly employed to bring Lewis Carroll’s whimsical visions to life.
Vast sets and clever illusions create spectacular effects.
As in Carroll’s book, the Cheshire Cat appears and disappears in the most peculiar way … helped out by some wizard puppeteers.
