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.”
