Few things are impossible in the off-kilter world of Derek Deane’s Alice in Wonderland. This imaginative ballet careens through Alice’s astonishing escapades and the perplexing characters she meets. Beginning with a surreal dive down the rabbit hole, illusion floods the stage with curiosities – a smorgasbord of doors, tutus made of playing cards, color-changing roses and size-shifting scenery. Seen through Deane’s creative lens on classical technique, the dancing complements the whimsy and wit of Lewis Carroll’s timeless story. Featuring over 100 costumes, a masterful medley of Tchaikovsky music and astonishing effects, this ballet offers a thrill ride of wonders.
