  • ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND LIVE at EDEN

    Tumble down the rabbit hole with The Royal Ballet this autumn with Christopher Wheeldon’s exciting Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland live at Eden Cinemas on Monday 23 October at 8.15pm.

    The original cast takes to the screen in this madcap adaptation of Lewis Caroll’s story. Exuding a girlish charm, Alice, danced by British Principal Lauren Cuthbertson, is joined by a host of familiar characters including the jittery White Rabbit, the eccentric, tap-dancing Mad Hatter, the enigmatic Caterpillar and the ferocious Queen of Hearts.


    This much-loved story is reimagined with quirky designs by Bob Crowley as we follow Alice into Wonderland across a lake of tears, playing croquet with flamingos and attending a deranged tea party. Drawing upon a wealth of theatrical effects, including projection and puppetry, Crowley creates a mesmerising world of enchantment from the grinning Cheshire Cat to the sinuous Caterpillar with his 16 legs of ballet dancers en pointe.


    A feast for the senses, Wheeldon’s spectacular ballet brings to life Carroll’s famous story with a menagerie of colours, characters and compelling choreography, whilst Joby Talbot’s lively score provides the perfect accompaniment to the ballet.


    Tickets are available at €18 for adults and €10 for children under 16. This includes a complimentary glass of wine, free parking at the Eden Leisure Car park and 25% discount at Waterbiscuit.

    For those unable to attend the live show, an encore screening will be held on Sunday 8th October at 3pm. Tickets are priced at €15 for adults and €10 for children, including free parking and 25% discount at Waterbiscuit.


    The event is sponsored by Vivian Corporation, Villa Sandi, Encore magazine, The Malta Arts Council and Waterbiscuit.

    Tickets may be purchased from the Eden Cinema box office or online at www.edencinemas.com.mt.
