At a garden party on a sunny afternoon, Alice is surprised to see her parents’ friend Lewis Carroll transform into a white rabbit. When she follows him down a rabbit hole events become curiouser and curiouser…
As Alice journeys through Wonderland, she encounters countless strange creatures. She’s swept off her feet by the charming Knave of Hearts, who’s on the run for stealing the tarts from the Queen of Hearts. Confusion piles upon confusion. There’s a Duchess who has a baby that looks like a pig. Then Alice wakes with a start. Was it all a daydream?
Goldsboro Ballet first presented the Alice in Wonderland Ballet to the Goldsboro Audience in 2004. 2013 brought the Ballet to the Paramount Theatre for the first time and in Spring of 2020 Goldsboro Ballet will bring the Ballet back for its 3rd Debut filled with an explosion of color, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography. The music composition brings sweeping melodies that gesture to ballet scores of the 19th century.
Alice encounters a cast of extraordinary and instantly recognizable characters, from the high strung Queen of Hearts, a playing card corps de ballet, a sinuous caterpillar and a comical Mad Hatter. But the ballet does not avoid the darker undercurrents of Lewis Carroll’s story: a mysterious Cheshire Cat and the unhinged tea party are all here in vivid detail. The delicious result shows Goldsboro Ballet at its best, bringing together technical Ballet with enchanting family entertainment.
