Journey alongside wide-eyed and often-savvy Alice through a world of mystery, beauty and silliness. Lewis Carroll’s famous words inspire inventive choreography by Courtney Lyon of Ballet Quad Cities. Colorful characters, humor and energy dance their way through Tchaikovsky’s epic score, performed by Orchestra Iowa. From the minute Alice tumbles down the rabbit hole, audiences will experience an adventure of whimsical space and time, showcased by costuming and lighting effects in the world premiere of this most unusual tale.
