Alice's Adventures in Wonderland DVD (The Royal Ballet)

 

  • The original cast recording of Christopher Wheeldon's spectacular Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Although it stars Lauren Cuthbertson as Alice and Sergei Polunin as the lovelorn Knave, no-one can forget Zenaida Yanowsky's show-stopping Queen of Hearts or Steven McRae's tap-dancing Mad Hatter. Captivating designs by Bob Crowley, an engaging and passionate score by Joby Talbot, and Wheeldon's breathtaking choreography combine to produce one of The Royal Ballet's most popular ballets.

    Also available on Blu-ray and as part of a DVD box-set for children

  • "[Wheeldon] and his team have created an Alice whose wit, speed and invention have lifted the whole story ballet genre into the 21st century." The Guardian

    "... a brilliantly theatrical, superbly designed (by Bob Crowley) extravaganza of color and costume, madcap action and fluent dance" New York Times

    "spectacular family entertainment brought to life with enormous theatrical verve." The Times

    "Wheeldon's casting of Cuthbertson... is inspired. With her hairband, willowy line and airy English style, she inhabits the role from the first." The Observer
