April 16, 2012… The National Ballet of Canada today announced that Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland will tour to Los Angeles’ Music Center, October 19 – 21, 2012, as part of their 2012-2013 season. The National Ballet last toured to Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre in 1977 with Swan Lake.

The 2012/13 season is an exciting year for the National Ballet with international touring engagements in Los Angeles, Washington, DC and London, England. The company will tour Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to the Kennedy Centre in Washington, DC, January 18 – 27, 2013 and Romeo and Juliet to Sadler’s Wells in London, April 17 – 21, 2013.

A co-production with England’s Royal Ballet, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Christopher Wheeldon was a huge success with audiences and critics alike when it made its world premiere in 2011. In Toronto, the premiere broke box office records, with fans waiting in line for hours to purchase tickets.
