  • "Alice is at it again... It’s a joy to look at and packed with featured roles that show off the Royal Ballet’s strength in depth." The Observer

    "Laura Morera... absolutely nails her twin roles as Alice’s mother and (supremely) the Queen of Hearts. Also deserving of plaudits are Fernando Montaño’s impossibly slinky Caterpillar, David Yudes’s spring-loaded Frog, and Gary Avis’s operatically OTT Duchess. But top marks go, above all, to Lauren Cuthbertson." Daily Telegraph
