Alice the Ballet

Produced by the Conservatory School of Dance at the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts, this high calibre performance featuring emerging East Coast dancers combines elements of Lewis Carroll's beloved Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

Filled with elaborate costumes, outlandish characters and vivid sets, it is a coming-of-age story exploring the wondrous space between childhood and the adult world.   

Follow Alice down the rabbit hole on an enchanting journey through a magical land and meet characters such as the Mad Hatter, Caterpillar, Chesire Cat and the famous Queen of Hearts.

Set to the music of Norwegian composer and pianist, Edvard Grieg.
