Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland © returns to take audiences back down the rabbit hole in February 2024. Translated from Lewis Carroll’s beloved book, Alice brings the eccentricities of the original story to the ballet stage in a tale suitable for the whole family. Watch as The Queen of Hearts rampages around her court, the White Rabbit shimmies his tail and the Caterpillar sparkles in 16 crystal-covered pointe shoes.

The Australian Ballet’s production of Alice won the 2018 Helpmann Award for Best Ballet and Best Female Dancer (Ako Kondo), and was nominated in four other categories, including Best Choreography, Best Scenic Design, Best Music Direction and Best Male.

“An extravaganza of the highest order” – Herald Sun 

Alice is an absolute audience favourite, it’s a family-friendly colourful trip down the rabbit hole that’s full of humour, gorgeous dancing and the mystery of Alice’s magical adventure. Christopher Wheeldon created a worldwide hit in this joyful, luscious production.” – David Hallberg, Artistic Director
