* A Day at the Ballet *

Hello Lovelies!

Firstly, I'd like to wish you all a Happy 2015, and all the best for the year ahead! I kicked off the New Year with a horrible bout of flu and a mountain of coursework to get through, which explains my lack of blogging lately - Sorry! Whilst I've had no time to take #ootd posts, I'd like to share with you all my recent trip to the ballet...

* Alice's Adventures in Wonderland *










 (All images from the Royal Opera House)

As a Christmas treat, my mum spoils the family by taking us on a trip to the ballet. As much as we wish it could be a live dancing performance in a theatre, we usually attend a streamed show at our local cinema (still just as great!). This year we had the pleasure of viewing the ballet adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic story, Alice in Wonderland, and the thrilling performance kept us mesmerised from start to finish. The story stayed true to the childhood classic, starting with Alice following the white rabbit down the rabbit hole, where things seem to get curiouser and curiouser. On her journey through Wonderland, Alice encounters countless creatures and bizarre characters from the extraordinary Queen of Hearts, tap-dancing Mad Hatter and an eerily ghost-like Cheshire Cat. Let's not forget the valiant and charming Knave of Hearts who sweeps Alice off her feet, but is on the run from the Queen for stealing one of her jam tarts...
The imaginative tale is complete with incredibly intricate sets and colourful costumes, which helped to make the story come alive and make Wonderland, wonderfully real. 
More soon,

Helen

  4. This is probably my most favourite modern ballet. I was so so so sooo excited when it first played, watched all the behind the scenes stuff when it was broadcast - so glad you enjoyed watching it! Ballet is such an amazing thing

  25. Omg Christopher Wheeldon (the choreographer of this Alice in Wonderland) is one of my absolute favorite choreographers of all time, and this production of Alice is stunning. Lucky you that you got to see it on a big screen!

  55. I remember watching the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland and being deathly afraid of the whole show as I was afraid of eating cookies and turning into a giant like Alice. The show looks absolutely beautiful and the cat is lovely.
