The world premiere of Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, a new full-length ballet created by Christopher Wheeldon for The Royal Ballet.

Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland brings a famous story and its equally famous characters to the ballet stage. The Victorian childhood of Lewis Carroll’s Alice and her encounters with extraordinary people, strange creatures and unusual events gives the Royal Ballet an entire new world to create and also gives a great chance to see the whole Company on stage in new guises.

The music for Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland – the first new, full-length ballet score for the Royal Ballet for 20 years – is by Joby Talbot and is conducted by Barry Wordsworth, Music Director of the Royal Ballet. With a scenario by Nicholas Wright, whose adaptations include His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, and designs by the internationally acclaimed Bob Crowley, this is a compelling creative team indeed.

Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland draws upon the full resources of the Royal ballet and the Royal Opera House in what is a major addition to the ballet repertory.
