Lewis Carroll’s ever-popular story provides the basis for Christopher Wheeldon’s spectacular new work, starring Royal Ballet Principal Lauren Cuthbertson. Captivating designs by Bob Crowley, an engaging and passionate score by Joby Talbot, and Wheeldon’s breathtaking choreography combine to produce in the words of The Times “spectacular family entertainment brought to life with enormous theatrical verve.’’
It was broadcast on the BBC over the Easter period.
The production will be revived at the Royal Opera House in Spring 2012.
