An 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. Melbourne City Ballet’s Michael Pappalardo (Artistic Director) and Brendan Bradshaw (Artistic Associate) pay homage to the well known novel by Lewis Carroll.
Melbourne City Ballet will entertain children and adult alike as they tour this work to 15 venue in New Zealand and over 45 venues across Australia.
“I’m so delighted to be bringing this ballet to New Zealand, my second home, having spent over 10 years of my career at the Royal New Zealand Ballet. It is a dream come true to stage this fantastic new ballet across the country” Brendan Bradshaw (Artistic Associate).
