Production details

Fun, furious, frantic, and utterly fantastic! The surreal world of Lewis Carroll's Alice, both in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, is given an extra twist in Gerald Barry's operatic treatment. At less than an hour for the whole opera, this short, sharp shot of mayhem is ideal as a family treat. Antony McDonald (of 2018/19's Hansel and Gretel) directs and designs this new production - the first ever staging of this musically virtuoso opera - with more than a touch of the Victorian toy theatre. The Red Queen, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter: meet a kaleidoscope of colourful characters in this joyful, headlong rush into a world gone deliciously mad. Sung in English and other languages with English surtitles.
