Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lewis Carroll's ever-popular story provides the basis for Chistopher Wheeldon's spectacular ballet, starring Royal Ballet principal Lauren Cuthbertson. Designs by Bob Crowley, a score by Jody Talbot, and Wheeldon's choreography combine to produce, in the words of The Times "spectacular family entertainment brought to life with enormous theatrical verve."

"...a monumental achievement. This production has to be the best dance adaptation of Lewis Carroll's children's classic on the planet." -- The Globe and Mail]
