Two of Australia’s leading Choreographers, Melbourne City Ballet’s Michael Pappalardo (Artistic Director) and Brendan Bradshaw (Artistic Associate), pay homage to the well-known novel by Lewis Carroll, Alice In Wonderland, with this enchanting ballet complimented by one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous scores. Alice In Wonderland tells the story of a young girl who is whisked away to a magical world of wonder. Falling through a rabbit hole she meets magical creatures both strange and mysterious on her adventure to find her way home.
Join the White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter as Alice ventures through Wonderland. This all new ballet is perfect for all ages and is a magical portrayal of the classical story. Over a year in the making, Melbourne City Ballet is set to entertain across Australia and New Zealand and bring a smile to both ballet audiences with its exquisite choreography and non-ballet audiences through its dynamic story telling.
“The magic I felt watching the cartoon as a child has inspired me to take on this partnership with Brendan. I want to be able to capture what I experienced as a child, and recreate it for audiences across Australia and New Zealand” Michael Pappalardo
With 40 unique costumes and newly designed tour-able sets, this ballet is sure to be a colourful and playful rendition on this story. In true Melbourne City Ballet fashion, the company brings a feast of movement to the stage. “We work very hard to produce breathtaking ballets at MCB. We work closely with the dancers to ensure that everything comes together, from the portrayal of the characters to how the whole ballet works together, we want a show that speaks to the audience through the whole journey.”
