Alice in Wonderland Ballet

More ballet, maybe for awhile.

I happened across The Royal Ballet's Alice in Wonderland. Here are some highlights (I'd recommend going to YouTube to watch the videos as they don't enlarge here).

The cards: The projections on the scrim are phenomenal in setting the mood and the ballerinas' tutus are the card shapes, their hats the numbers!

The Caterpillar: gorgeous black man in harem pants with his ballerinas also in gorgeous ensembles a la the Ballet Russe.

The Red Queen: it's just funny. I laughed out loud, at ballet.

The White Rabbit: I just love his tails.
