At the Irvine Barclay Theatre
With masterful dancing and a delightful charm, Festival Ballet Theatre’s Alice in Wonderland takes you on a heart-racing adventure. Lewis Carroll’s classic tale comes magically to life with all your favorite characters – the lovable White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and the infamous Queen of Hearts. Take a journey down the Rabbit Hole, into Wonderland Garden and through the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, all adorned with whimsical sets, wildly realistic masks and colorful costumes. Choreographed by Emmy Award-winning choreographer Robert Sund to Jean Sibelius’ lyrical melodies, Alice in Wonderland is an enchanting adventure that will delight children and adults alike.
This sumptuous program of dance also includes Balanchine’s Serenade (First Movement)and Valse-Fantaisie and a new work by choreographer Josie Walsh.
