Tumble down the rabbit hole with The Royal Ballet with a live performance of Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in cinemas across the country on Tuesday, December 16.
The evening will see screenings at Chichester Cineworld and Chichester Cinema at New Park.
Spokeswoman Sophie Wilkinson said: “Exuding a girlish charm Alice, danced by American principal Sarah Lamb, is joined by a host of familiar characters including the gardeners’ boy, Federico Bonelli, who later becomes her Knaves of Hearts with a blissful pas de deux, the ferocious Queen of Hearts, the jittery White Rabbit and the quirky tap-dancing Mad Hatter.
“The familiar story is reimagined with quirky designs by Bob Crowley as we follow Alice into Wonderland across a lake of tears, playing croquet with flamingos and hedgehogs and attending a deranged tea party. Drawing upon a wealth of theatrical effects, projection and puppetry are used to visualise the grinning Cheshire Cat and sinuous Caterpillar with his 16 legs of ballet dancers en pointe creating a mesmerising world of enchantment. A feast for the senses, Wheeldon’s spectacular ballet brings to life Lewis Carroll’s famous story with a menagerie of colours, characters and compelling choreography whilst Joby Talbot’s lively score provides the perfect accompaniment.”
