Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland burst onto the stage in 2011 in an explosion of colour, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography.

Joby Talbot’s score combines contemporary soundworlds with sweeping melodies that gesture to ballet scores of the 19th century. Bob Crowley’s wildly imaginative, eye-popping designs draw on everything from puppetry to projections to make Wonderland wonderfully real.

Alice encounters a cast of extraordinary and instantly recognizable characters, from the highly strung Queen of Hearts – who performs a hilarious send-up of The Sleeping Beauty’s famous Rose Adage – to a playing card corps de ballet, a sinuous caterpillar and a tap-dancing Mad Hatter. But the ballet does not avoid the darker undercurrents of Lewis Carroll’s story: a nightmarish kitchen, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat and the unhinged tea party are all here in vivid detail. The delicious result shows The Royal Ballet at its best, bringing together world-class dance with enchanting family entertainment.

Doors open at 6.15pm, and the screening commences at 7.15pm. Seating is unallocated. We have space for up to 10 wheelchairs, and an accessible toilet. To reserve a wheelchair space and adjacent seat(s) please email info@hebdenbridgepicturehouse.co.uk.

There is a kiosk with a bar in the foyer which is open prior to the screening and during any interval.

There is no parking at the Picture House, but town has several car parks and on street parking near to the cinema. We are a cash only venue, and do not accept cards.

All times listed are the programme start time unless otherwise stated. Films start approx 30 mins after the programme start time.
