About

Here in all their whimsy and vivid charm is a pair of fairy-tale masterpieces from choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. His brilliant adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s surreal Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, choreographed for The Royal Ballet where he is Artistic Associate, is described by The Times as ‘spectacular family entertainment brought to life with enormous theatrical verve’. His innovative reimagining of Cinderella for Dutch National Ballet, to Prokofiev’s celebrated and colourful score, gives the characters renewed depth and complexity, creating a truly magical experience.

‘...This Alice looks set to become a classic.’ - The Guardian ★★★★ (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland)

‘Wheeldon's narrative offers magic in every sphere - design, choreography, and orchestra.’ - BBC Music Magazine ★★★★ (Cinderella)
