Still winding my way backwards through the magical events of the past couple of weeks and have at last arrived at the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland ballet.
No big photo gallery to share with you today, however… I did want to give you a glimpse at one of Alice’s costumes that they had on display in the theater. This particular dress is worn in Act 1 which is set in Oxford, England 1862. The Dean of Christ Church’s wife is hosting a garden party to which Alice and her sisters all wear this dress but in different colors. I do hope someday you get to see the ballet to also see how this dress is transformed once Alice dives down the rabbit hole.
Here is a little snippet from the NYC Joyce production where you can get a sense for more of the amazing costumes and incredible dancing and sets:
But better yet, The Royal Ballet of the UK filmed a short collection of videos from rehearsals, behind the scenes, and discussions on dance styles used in the production. If you have some time they are all very lovely to watch.
I am sincerely still blown away about how incredible the show was. I don’t think there was a moment throughout when I was without a smile on my face. We had such a fantastic time. If I can catch it again on tour I just might!!
