Ballet Idaho: Alice in Wonderland 

Friday-Saturday, April 11-12

You've seen it multiple times, whether as a film, a different film, a television show or maybe you even read it as a book. It's the classic tale that always finds its way back into the spotlight: Alice in Wonderland. But have you seen it interpreted through dance?

Experience the classic childhood fairytale as a live performance courtesy of Ballet Idaho.

The world of topsy-turvy madness is brought to life by choreographer Alex Ossadnik, who has worked around the country on such popular titles as Beauty and the Beast, Carmen and Cinderella. Ossadnik takes this topsy-turvy world full of color and adventure and places it on the stage for all to admire, accompanied by the music of German composer Herbert Baumann.

"It's a lot of work, but it's fun," Ossadnik said of his experience crafting the ballet. He also assured that the play is family friendly and audience members don't have to know a thing about ballet to be able to enjoy this new interpretation of a classic.

Be greeted by familiar and favorite characters, as the play is filled with many--the smile of the Cheshire Cat, the bountiful voice of the Red Queen and the false sincerity that is the Mad Hatter.

Do you find yourself believing in up to six different impossible things before you sit down to breakfast? Time to jump down the rabbit hole and make sure not to be late, for this very, very, important date.
