CANCELLED – Peace Interlude: Hong Kong Ballet's ALICE (in wonderland)

Peace Center Campus

Important Information
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.

Because Peace Interludes are designed to enhance your experience by digging deeper into the musical history and inspiration for upcoming performances, the Hong Kong Ballet Peace Interlude on April 2 has also been cancelled.


"Curiouser and curiouser!" Originally published in 1865, Alice in Wonderland has become a favorite for children and adults alike with its peculiar characters, fanciful places, and bizarre adventures. First appearing during a time when children's literature was generally expected to teach a moral lesson, the apparent nonsense of Carroll's stories was not initially well-received. Go down the rabbit hole of dance, music, and storytelling to rediscover Carroll's classic tale at this Peace Interlude. 

Did you know?
By the end of the 19th century, Alice (including the initial collection and the sequel, Through the Looking-Glass) had become the most popular children's book in England.

Featured Beverage: The Mad Hatter Martini
Featured Performance: Hong Kong Ballet’s ALICE (in wonderland)
