Directed by Caroline Chaneywith set and costume designs by Leslie Travers, Opera Collective Ireland’s touring production features a vibrant young Irish cast and the Irish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Stephen Barlow.

In this fantastical place Alice comes across a number of peculiar characters, including a relaxed caterpillar, a happy cat, a depressive hare, a white knight, a romantic duchess, a mad hatter and a sleepy dormouse, and learns that all is not well in Wonderland…
From the familiar characters, blues-inspired music, and comic texts, this can be enjoyed by audiences young and old.
