Wheeldon's "Alice" in a Movie Theater Near You

U.S. ballet fans did a little sauté for joy when it was announced earlier this year that the Royal Opera House would be bringing its popular movie broadcasts stateside. Tonight, The Royal Ballet's production of Christopher Wheeldon's fanciful Alice's Adventures in Wonderland will air in cinemas across the country at 7 pm local time. The cast includes Sarah Lamb as Alice, Federico Bonelli as Jack/The Knave of Hearts, Edward Watson as Lewis Carroll/The White Rabbit, Zenaida Yanowsky as Mother/The Queen of Hearts, and Steven McRae as Magician/The Mad Hatter. Don't miss this opportunity to see some of The Royal's best on the big screen. (Can't make it tonight? Mark your calendar: The next ROH screening will be The Nutcracker on December 17.)
