I simply cannot wait for this Friday, as I am attending the US premiere of Christopher Wheeldon's Alice in Wonderland ballet with the National Ballet of Canada. A couple weeks ago, I had the privilege of interviewing one of the soloists at the National Ballet of Canada, Chelsy Meiss, and we talked about her own impression of the production.
After speaking with her and viewing a few of the video clips online, I feel truly excited to see this brand new story ballet. I've always been a fan of Wheeldon's choreography and composer Joby Talbot's work as well. It seems like it's sure to be an enjoyable and impressive performance.
You can read the full interview here on DIY Dancer, and be on the lookout for my follow up review next week too! Until then, check out this video clip about the production when it premiered on the Royal Ballet. Enjoy!
