5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer magic! 9 Oct 2012
By Penny
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this ballet by way of introducing my 2.5 year old grand daughter to dance, music and of course, Alice in Wonderland. She and I have watched hour upon hour. It was a huge undertaking for the Royal Ballet and it does not disappoint. Imaginative use of various media bring this classic tale to life. The score is wonderful and the dancers both faultless and humorous! Don't hesitate to consider this for the families christmas stocking - a lovely way to relax after christmas lunch or coping with the long dark winter. A must for anyone who enjoys ballet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, love, love. 6 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first discovered this ballet when I was writing my masters dissertation on Alice in Wonderland's cultural influence two years ago. It's just fantastic. Whilst I love the portrayal of Alice, the show is stolen by the ballerina who plays the Queen of Hearts. The sets, costumes and music were excellent and I found myself totally immersed. I'm afraid I'm not very good at reviewing the technical aspects of either a ballet performance or the DVD quality (I found no faults with either myself, although I'm sure you can find this information in another review). If you like ballet, or Alice in Wonderland, or just a good show - please buy this and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Great! Wheeldon's Alice in Wonderland 12 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
I loved it and watched twice in the same day. The lighting, costumes, coreography, the stage decoration are amazing, dancers fabulous, it is more than ballet! A masterpiece! Watched it with my daughter aged 13 studying ballet in conservatory, my husband who is an architect and my nephew only 6 years old. We all were fascinated by Wheeldon's Alice version. Use of new visual technologies with ballet were fabulous. Thank you Wheeldon and the team and dancers of Royal Ballet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Wheeldon 6 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
This is one of Wheeldon's master pieces. The story is clearly explained with no moment of relax. Scenes are passing by while you find there the mistery, the charm, even the fair one can experience in Carroll's tale. Also a great sense of humour, Zenaida Yanowsky is brilliant!! All dancers are at their best, Lauren Cuthbertson, the heroin who dances and dances non stop. McRae, Polulin, great dancers for an amazing Wheeldon!

4.0 out of 5 stars The white rabbit learns to dance 26 Aug 2012
Format:DVD
The Royal Ballet's new version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is certainly adventurous. It must be fantastic to see on stage. Sadly, on this DVD, the sometimes MTV-style camera work detracts rather than enhances.

This new ballet is quite ambitious with lots of clever costumes and effects (although a few would probably be more at home in a Lloyd Webber musical). The large and energetic cast give it their all, in particular Lauren Cuthbertson as Alice who seems to be almost constantly on stage. But the real star for me was Zenaida Yanowsky as the Queen of Hearts who gives a wonderfully comic and virtuoso performance. In fact, I was feeling somewhat restless during the first half of the ballet. But once the Queen of Hearts came into it, the whole thing was lifted immeasurably.

On the downside, the music is largely functional rather than memorable and a few scenes went on longer than they really needed to. On the whole, it is an enjoyable ballet. But I'm not certain I will be returning to it as often as I do some others. Still, it's always nice to see the Royal Ballet doing something new and different.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing 18 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
Every good thing has been said about this production in previous reviews, except for one. What about the wonderful scene with the equally wonderful Steven Mcrae as the "tap-dancing" mad hatter. Wash the sound of his "tapping" was on the cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Classic! 9 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loved this from start to finish. The dancing and music were sublime. I did find a little pixelation around the edges at times but it didn't detract from my enjoyment and I put it down to not having a high-definition TV. This ballet has all the potential of a true classic.
