Summary

Alice is off on her adventures again, this time through her mirror into the whimsical Looking-Glass Land where words are backwards, time flies and eggs can talk! Join an ensemble of Britten Sinfonia players on an interactive musical journey for the whole family. But don’t just listen, help us tell the story. Create a mysterious soundscape for the terrifying Jabberwock, compete in a royal bowing competition to welcome the Red Queen, help Humpty Dumpty out of a tricky situation, try a spot of conducting and join us in a sing-song to celebrate Alice’s fantastical adventures.

The show is presented by Jessie Maryon-Davies and includes music by Beethoven, Ravel, Satie, Tchaikovsky, Bartok and Ligeti. An accompanying creative resource pack full of activities is available to download for free here.
