About this show

Northrop presents the U.S. premiere of Wonderland, Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet's dynamic re-interpretation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale (Alice in Wonderland) in a new, full-length story ballet choreographed by Canada's acclaimed RWB alumnus, Shawn Hounsell. The Queen of Hearts, White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, and our other favorite characters and themes display generous doses of wit, camp, and humor. Surreal and dark elements that lurk at the original story's fringes are bravely realized in explosive passages of breathtaking dance and a multisensory fantasy, with edgy and athletic movement, an electro-acoustic soundscape, and unexpected visual treats. Minnesota audiences will once again be enchanted by the versatility, technical excellence, and captivating style that are the trademarks of Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
