The Connaught Cinema, Worthing presents another chance to see Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from the Royal Opera House at 7.30 pm on New Year’s Day (Thursday January 1st).
Christopher Wheeldon’s full-length ballet based on Lewis Carroll’s book is an exuberant piece of storytelling featuring an instantly recognizable cast of characters, among them a tap-dancing Mad Hatter, a tetchy White Rabbit and a raucously bad-tempered Queen of Hearts.
Wheeldon, along with composer Joby Talbot and designer Bob Crowley, have created a genuine family ballet in the spirit of Carroll’s much-loved children’s classic. While regular ballet goers can appreciate nods to other famous works – there’s a parody of the Rose Adagio from The Sleeping Beauty, for example, with jam tarts instead of flowers – the ballet is above all a brilliant realization of Carroll’s zany dream-world featuring stunning choreography, a colourful score and ingenious stage-magic…
Tickets are £14.50 with concessions £2.00 discount and Friends £3.00 discount.
The Connaught Cinema is at 3 Union Place, Worthing.
