An early Christmas present, the stream will offer a world-wide audience the chance to see the sold-out hip hop-theatre production inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Royal Ballet’s take on which is being performed on the Covent Garden main stage over the festive period. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to be notified when we publish an exclusive dance off between two Mad Hatters taking to the ROH stages this Christmas!
The live stream is delivered in association with BBC Arts and will also be available on the BBC Arts website.
Drawing on influences as diverse as Shakespeare and Sondheim, The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party sees the Wonderland characters in therapy, enacting a never-ending tea party. The show is suitable for children aged 5 years and above. The production features Turbo (Sky’s ‘Got to Dance’, CBBC’s ‘Turbo Boost’) and Tommy Franzen (Zoo Nation’s Some Like it Hip Hop, Goldberg at the Royal Opera House) as part of the ZooNation Company and is set to a newly-commissioned score.
The Royal Opera House YouTube channel is about to hit 100,000 subscribers and is the most subscribed-to channel of any arts organization in the world. As well as occasional live streams of performances and events, the channel features regular uploads of behind-the-scenes films and production clips.
