Special Event: The Royal Opera House Live
presents Christopher Wheeldon’s
"ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN
Wednesday, January 28, 6:30 pm
Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
arrived on the stage in 2011 with a burst of colour, theatrical magic
and inventive choreography. It was The Royal Ballet’s first new
full-length work since 1995 and was greeted with delight by audiences.
Joby Talbot’s score combines contemporary soundworlds with sweeping
melodies that gesture to ballet scores of the 19th century. Bob
Crowley’s wildly imaginative sets and costumes draw on puppetry,
projections and masks to make Wonderland wonderfully real.
encounters a cast of extraordinary characters, from the highly-strung
Queen of Hearts, who performs a hilarious send-up of The Sleeping Beauty's
famous Rose Adage, to dancing playing cards, a sinuous caterpillar and
a tap-dancing Mad Hatter. Alice and the Knave of Hearts dance a tender,
loving pas de deux of delicate beauty. But the ballet does not avoid
the darker undercurrents of Lewis Carroll’s story – a nightmarish
kitchen, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat and the unhinged tea party
are all created in vivid detail.
