Alice in Wonderland
This is one important date you cannot be late for! With dazzling musical invention,
Unsuk Chin finds captivating new voices for familiar friends: from the beguiling caterpillar, the delightful White Rabbit, the hilarious Mad Hatter and the willful Queen of Hearts to Alice herself. The denizens of this dream world blend the fantasy, whimsy, and darkness of Lewis Carroll’s original tale in an unforgettable journey down the rabbit hole.Opernwelt magazine called Alice’s European debut “the world premiere of the year.” The Los Angeles Times echoed, “A wondrous new work… triumphs in Munich … as colorful as a look through a kaleidoscope.” With a libretto by David Henry Hwang, playwright of M. Butterfly, Alice in Wonderland has already been listed among the “New Masterpieces” in the January 2011 Opera News. Starring Ashley Emerson as Alice, returning after her triumph in The Daughter of the Regiment last season, this American premiere is staged by OTSL Artistic Director James Robinson and conducted by Michael Christie. (Recommended for ages 10 and up.)
