She's back! After sell-out seasons in 2017, Christopher Wheeldon's madcap, majestic Alice returns to Melbourne.

This is your chance to find out what all the buzz was about – or to revisit the rich detail and dizzy highs of this hot-ticket show.

Wheeldon has masterfully translated the humour and eccentricity of Lewis Carroll's beloved book to the ballet stage. The Queen of Hearts rampages around her court in a hilarious parody of the Rose Adage, the White Rabbit shimmies his tail, the Caterpillar is an exotic vision with 16 sparkly pointe shoes and the Cheshire Cat is a triumph of the puppeteer's art.

The Tony Award-winning designer Bob Crowley has created a marvellous blend of high-tech wizardry and old-fashioned show-business pizazz, referencing Victorian toy theatres, needlepoint and vaudeville amid darker and stranger visions. Composer Joby Talbot captures Wonderland's moods in an evocative score alive with Cheshire purrs and ticking clocks.

The Australian Ballet's production of Alice won the Helpmann Award for Best Ballet in 2018, and was nominated in five other categories, including Best Choreography, Best Scenic Design and Best Male and Female Dancer. Now it's time to fall back down the rabbit hole – don't be late for this very important date!
