Alice, the courageous little girl from Victorian England, who curiously follows a white rabbit with a pocket watch into his burrow and has all kinds of whimsical adventures deep underground, is one of the most beloved children's book heroines of all time. Since 1865, when Lewis Carroll’s classic novel Alice in Wonderland first appeared, her bizarre experiences in Wonderland and the sequel Beyond the Looking Glass have captured the imagination of children and adults alike. Each generation reinvents Alice’s encounters with the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and the many others in a unique way.
Let ballet director Radek Stopka and the story’s much-loved characters whisk you away to Wonderland in this imaginative dance fairy tale for the whole family. The music is provided by the Dresden composer Sven Helbig: sensually powerful chord sequences have a hypnotic effect like the mysterious caterpillar with its water pipe; energetic rhythms drive Alice deeper and deeper into her story and us in the audience with her.
