Alice scoming to Rialto

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a brilliantly imagined show

The Rialto Theatre presents the Royal Ballet performing Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland this Saturday at 9:30 a.m.

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 two Royal Ballet Principal dancers, are at the centre of the story, and the role of The Queen of Hearts, another principal, is wittily captured with hilarious results.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a brilliantly imagined show and, with a magical score, ingeniously inventive designs, and a wealth of theatrical effects, has something for everyone to treasure.

Don’t miss what the Telegraph called “a dazzling affair … intoxicating and exceptional … [Wheeldon] – along with everyone else involved in this mind-boggling production – should also take a bow.” Tickets are on sale at the Rialto box office. For more information, call the theatre at 250-338-5502.
