Bristol Ballet presents â€œAlice in Wonderlandâ€ Saturday, May 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the Paramount Center for the Arts. Jump down the rabbit hole to take a journey through Wonderland with Bristol Balletâ€™s Company members and student body as they present their annual student concert.
Bristol Balletâ€™s â€œAlice in Wonderlandâ€ draws inspiration from Lewis Carrollâ€™s classic tale â€œAliceâ€™s Adventures in Wonderland.â€ A polite and well-mannered child, Alice is extremely curious about the world around her. When she falls down the rabbit hole, she finds herself in a fantastical but irreverent world where the rules of social etiquette donâ€™t matter and time is irrelevant.
The performance features high-tech digital displays along with classical ballet and traditional characters and sets. â€œAlice in Wonderland will be a delightful way to wrap up our 70th anniversary season,â€ says Artistic Director Michele Plescia. â€œThe performance will have an exciting twist as we plan to use the Paramountâ€™s projection equipment during the show. This use of digital effects will be a fun and challenging way to combine 21st century technology with Bristol Balletâ€™s 70 year tradition of classical ballet.â€
Tickets are available through the Paramount box office. Admission is $11.25 for adults, $9 for students and seniors, and $6.50 for children under 6. For more information about other Bristol Ballet programming, visit www.BristolBallet.org.
