Lewis Carrollís beloved, dreamlike stories are startlingly re-imagined in this UK premiere production of Unsuk Chinís operatic adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

A glittering and crazed work by Chin and librettist David Henry Hwang, the riotous exhilaration and jet-black humour of the score meet their match tonight in Netia Jonesís tour de force production.

Celebrated for her innovative multimedia creations, including Brittenís Curlew River at St Giles Cripplegate in 2013, director/designer/video artist Jones realises her vision of the composerís surreal take on Carroll by combining the darkly imaginative illustrations of gonzo-artist Ralph Steadman with live action, interactive animated projections, eye-popping costumes and choreography.

Please note that this production is not suitable for under-12s.
