Grand Rapids Ballet Presents Alice in Wonderland

Grand Rapids Ballet—Michigan’s only professional ballet company—presents  the highly anticipated return of its 2017 sold-out smash hit, Alice in Wonderland, May 3-5 and 10-11 at Peter Martin Wege Theatre.

Revue Magazine called it “a modern masterpiece!”

This exciting family-friendly show features the choreography of Grand Rapids Ballet favorite, Brian Enos, the  artistic director of The Big Muddy Dance Company in St. Louis, Missouri. While known locally as a contemporary  choreographer, Brian is just as talented at choreographing classical ballet. As Hedy Weiss of Chicago Sun-Times said, Brian’s  work is “alternately sexy, playful, absurd, and quirkily exotic.”

The magical world and colorful characters are imagined by Argentinian visual artist, Luis Grané, best known for his  award-winning illustration work on such major motion pictures as The Box Trolls, The Matrix, Hotel Transylvania, and  Ratatouille. The ballet story will stay true to the beloved novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll originally  published in 1865.

Evening and matinee performances will take place over two weekends:
• Friday, May 3 at 7:30pm
• Saturday, May 4 at 7:30pm
• Sunday, May 5 at 2pm
• Friday, May 10 at 7:30pm
• Saturday, May 11 at 7:30pm

Tickets are available on Ticketmaster, grballet.com, 616.454.4771 x 10, or at the  box office at 341 Ellsworth  Avenue SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.
