CANCELLED – Hong Kong Ballet’s ALICE (in wonderland)
Peace Concert Hall
In light of recent developments related to the current coronavirus outbreak, Hong Kong Ballet has postponed its upcoming tour to the US, and their performance of ALICE (in wonderland) scheduled for April 21 at the Peace Center has been cancelled.
Get ready for a wild ride down the rabbit hole…
Bursting with energy and imagination, Septime Webre’s extravagant ALICE (in wonderland) explodes with jaw-dropping excitement and fantasy. This giddy, over-the-top reimagining of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale promises a spectacular adventure overflowing with exhilarating fun.
Webre’s choreography showcases a dizzying array of dances that merge traditional ballet with contemporary energy, capturing the topsy-turvy magic of Wonderland and the bizarre characters that confront Alice on her incredible journey. With mastery and unexpected humor, Webre reimagines the familiar tale as a fusion of dance, theater, and puppetry that is both visually stunning and enormously entertaining. ALICE (in wonderland) features sleek and chic costumes from Cirque du Soleil designer Liz Vandal, James Kronzer’s bold, hypnotic sets, and a thrilling original score by Matthew Pierce.
