Don't miss the outrageous, eye-popping theatrical ballet event that is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland—begins January 18!
The National Ballet of Canada

"A brilliantly theatrical, superbly designed extravaganza of color and costume, madcap action, and fluent dance"-The New York Times
The National Ballet of Canada returns to the Kennedy Center with an outrageous, eye-popping theatrical production of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that is "certain to impress, delight, and amuse" (Toronto Sun). A co-production with London's Royal Ballet, the work was a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic when it premiered in 2011, enthralling and astounding audiences show after show with its mind-boggling stagecraft, startling choreography, and perfectly nuanced blend of classical dance and sheer entertainment.
Lewis Carroll's perpetually winsome, subversive, cunning, and hilarious children's classic is given a glorious ballet treatment by British choreographer Christopher Wheeldon that is the very measure of the original, set to an energetic, riveting, original score by Joby Talbot. Bolstered by striking sets and costumes by Bob Crowley, Wheeldon revisits and brings to the stage many of the tale's beloved characters in brilliant choreographic arrangements that will undoubtedly create fresh impressions of these familiar faces.
