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.

“What a treat this is - such an imaginative treatment of a favourite story. There are extraordinary, eccentric sets and special effects; colourful, larger-than-life, argumentative characters and extraordinary costumes. Lauren Cuthbertson, as Alice, is excellent, her every movement suggesting the actions and emotions of this curious, spirited pre-adolescent... Christopher Wheeldon’s choreography is very imaginative and fitting for every character”
