Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
For the opening of the Ballet Festival Week Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland celebrates its Germany première. The piece which is also referred to as the musical amongst the ballets was created in 2011 by Christopher Wheeldon for the Royal Ballet in London and is an absolute darling of the audience. As in the original by Lewis Carroll, the dancing Alice also embarks on a journey through a wondrous dream world. She encounters the famous Queen of Hearts who dances a strange and hilarious version of the Rose-Adagio from The Sleeping Beauty, dancing playing cards, a flexible caterpillar, a miraculously body less Cheshire Cat as well as a mad hatter. Christopher Wheeldon uses different styles of dance for his characters which reflect themselves in Joby Talbots multilayered composition and in the imaginative costumes and stage worlds of Bob Crowley. For the special effects magician Paul Kieve who also did the magic in the Harry Potter movies created stunning tricks.
