Bellydance Evolution takes the much-loved story of Alice in Wonderland to the next level in this reimagined dance version that incorporates world fusion and hip-hop dance. The colorful, crazy characters of Wonderland come to life in a whole new way, giving a fresh burst of soul and energy to the almost 50-year-old tale of a young girl who falls down a rabbit hole and finds herself on the adventure of a lifetime: chasing a talking rabbit, taking tea with a Mad Hatter and facing up to the fearsome Queen of Hearts.

Carmen, choreographed by Elizabeth Wistrich in 1988, is a condensed version based on Bizet’s famous opera of the same name. The ballet is set in Spain in 1820. Carmen, a beautiful and sultry girl working in a cigarette factory, gets into a fight with another girl and is arrested by a sergeant, Don José, who finds himself attracted to her. Besotted by Carmen, he leaves his orderly life behind to join her smuggler band, only to be overcome by jealousy as she soon tires of him and takes up with the famous toreador, Escamillo. Hunted by soldiers as a fugitive, Don José pleads with Carmen to come back to him, but she refuses, and he stabs her in a jealous rage. Opulent sets are courtesy of Stivanello of New York and the colorful costumes were designed and created by world-renown designer David Heuvel.
Enigma was created by Elizabeth Wistrich in 2000 to music by Enigma and she received a Tommy Award for its brilliant choreography that same year. The ballet is a contemporary ballet enhanced with exciting multi-media effects that fills the stage provided by videographer Peter Oliver. Costumes were designed and created by David Heuvel.
