"Imagine a totally unwired world and the impact of so much visual richness on the children in it. Then unplug a 21st century kid, and head for the Gould..."- The Village Voice

Follow Alice’s adventures through Wonderland as she meets some of the most beloved characters in children’s literature. Presented in a vaudeville setting (NY circa 1915) this eclectic ballet draws on many different dance forms – from Irish step dancing to African Jubba to classical ballet. The ballet features sets by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith and costumes by Sylvia Taalshon Nolan, Resident Costume Designer of the Metropolitan opera.

The Alice-in-Wonderland Follies is part of NYTB’s Once Upon a Ballet series. Other ballets in the Once Upon a Ballet series include:

Cinderella
March 1-2, 2014 at 11am, 1pm, and 3:30pm

Carnival of the Animals & Sleeping Beauty's Wedding
May 3, 2014 at 1pm, May 4 at 11am, 1pm, and 3:30pm
