For over a hundred years, Lewis Carroll's classic story of logic and lunacy has delighted young and old alike. The topsy-turvy world of Wonderland and its memorable cast of characters--Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts--are brought to life with distinctive warmth and humor in this fascinating ballet.
