Those familiar with Lewis Carroll's literary menagerie of colorful characters will enjoy the clarity with which Christopher Wheeldon portrays them in dance. The whole company is drawn into the fun, dancing a myriad of quirky characters: a twitchy White Rabbit, a tap dancing Mad Hatter, a sinuous caterpillar and so many more. Alice and the Knave of Hearts deftly danced by Principal Dancers Sarah Lamb and Frederico Bonelli, are at the centre of the story, and in the role of the Queen of Hearts, Zenaida Yanowsky is wittily captured with hilarious results.
"A dazzling affair...intoxicating and exceptional...[Wheeldon] -- along with everyone else involved in this mind-boggling production -- should also take a bow." -The Telegraph
