Already tired of The Nutcracker nuttiness? Give yourself a break while still feeding your ballet brain by trekking to the movie theater on Tuesday, December 16. Fathom Events will screen Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for The Royal Ballet in nearly 400 theaters across the U.S. The film will run at 7 pm, local time, and it will be of a performance that happened earlier in the day.
And Boston native Sarah Lamb will star as Alice! (She’s replacing injured Brit Lauren Cuthbertson.) Get your Alice on ahead of time by watching this behind-the-scenes video clip on the making of the ballet.
I saw this ballet in September with The National Ballet of Canada (NBC and RB share performance rights of the ballet), and it’s not to be missed. You’ll see a fully interactive Cheshire Cat, a tap-dancing Mad Hatter, amazing special effects and a truly memorable White Rabbit.
