Lewis Carroll’s classic tale of the Victorian girl travelling into a magical world comes to the stage of the Royal Opera House in 2011 in a brand new ballet that the company is calling the must-see event of the year. With an acclaimed team working behind the scenes and the whole company returning to the stage in a range of unique roles for the ballet it will certainly be a stand-out production and one that will provide a distinct spectacle as part of the 2011 season. So prepare to witness a classic story retold by the prestigious team of the Royal Ballet, with Barry Wordsworth – the Music Director of the Royal Ballet – taking on conducting duties.
So those with ballet tickets in 2011 are in for a real treat as the character of Alice takes a step into Wonderland, filled with an array of familiar characters that have been immortalised in literature and onscreen. Of course there’s the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and more, plus one of the most famous literary felines of all time – the Cheshire Cat. All of these characters have appeared onstage before, and audiences around the world are familiar with them, but never as a prestigious ballet at the Royal Opera House.
The man who has created this production, which is likely to wow London theatre audiences in 2011, is Christopher Wheeldon, a renowned choreographer who has worked on a wide range of shows for the Royal Ballet, the New York City Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet and the Bolshoi Ballet, amongst others. His works include Tears of St Lawrence and more, making him an internationally recognised name in the world of ballet – a contributing factor to the importance of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland when it opens in March 2011.
The scenario is presented by Nicholas Wright and designed by Bob Crowley and when it opens it will be an anticipated part of a season of shows that already includes the likes of Swan Lake and Giselle in 2011, meaning that audiences with ballet tickets for the Royal Ballet are in for a treat.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland appears at the Royal Opera House from Wednesday 2nd March 2011 to Tuesday 15th March 2011.
