Choreographed by Webre who was inspired by characters and events from Lewis Carroll’s classic novel, ALICE (in wonderland) showcases a dizzying array of dances that merge traditional ballet with contemporary energy, capturing the topsy-turvy magic of Wonderland and the bizarre characters that confront Alice on her incredible journey.

Bursting with energy and imagination, the visually stunning and enormously entertaining world of the heroine Alice, the White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts and Mad Hatter features captivating costumes by Cirque du Soleil designer Liz Vandal, outrageously flamboyant sets by James Kronzer and Matthew Pierce’s hypnotic original score.

Beloved by both audiences and critics, the production notably won Outstanding Performance by a Female Dancer, Outstanding Ensemble Performance and Outstanding Costume Design at the 21st Hong Kong Dance Awards.

Six performances will be held at Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Culture Centre. Priced at $680, $480, $320 and $180, with VIP tickets at $1,000. Suitable for ages 3 and above.
