A wonderful, magical synthesis of dance, music, costumes and stagecraft.

First act started off slow. But I stayed with it --- and that proved a wise decison. The pas de deux in the second act (and actually another one in the third) were pure delight in every aspect. A lot of special affects are used --- most...continued

The pluses, interesting and lavish production and score with live orchestra. The minuses, rather stilted dancing and generally overdone making it more than a bit laborious.

The production built from the first act. I was interested in comparison to the Alice in Wonderland staged last year by the Washington Ballet.

Fantastic! The staging is so good it distracts from the dancing, but upon concentration the dancing is fabulous. This was the best produced ballet I have ever attended.

First rate in every way. A bit of a slow start that built up to a brilliant full force finale. Dancers were superb, music was divine.

The production as a whole was enjoyable and there were a lot of surprising visual effects. However, as much as the dancers were pretty good, I didn't think the choreography was exceptional.

This is a terrific ballet for newcomers. The story is familiar, the music contemporary, the staging is fascinating and creative, costumes interesting, characters range from expected to great surprise, and the dancers very fine. If you don't like...continued

This ballet was wonderful. the choreography was exceptional, the costumes and set beautiful, and the music unusual and inspiring. It would be sad to miss this exceptional performance.

Delightful performance of 'Alice!' The staging is incredibly creative and almost steals the show. Great way to introduce young people to ballet.

It was great fun to see how they put this magical show on stage in a ballet. The staging and storyline is great, but it is not particularly balletic. However the third act is unbelievably fun and should not be missed.

The play was excellent.The lighting and visuals were OUTSTANDING. The only con was that with the 2 intermissions the play seemed to last a long time. Well worth it, though.

It was a delightful production, although I found the addition of a love interest to be a tiresome and unnecessary intrusion to the story. By the third act, the entire chorus had to mime being heart-warmed in an attempt to convince us, the...continued

The sets and costumes were out outstanding. The dances were beautiful and fun, but this ballet is more about storytelling. The visual effects really worked as well. It was a visually stimulating experience.

Very imaginative ballet, with a wonderful music score, that was written in parallel with the coreography.
