Day 2 of WC and I’m loving this cast and crew! Finished the opening number today. Lots and lots of fun.
Get your tickets now because I hear they’re flying! December 6th-18th. Click here for tickets.
Now I have two Youtube vids for you today. The first is the Red Queen dance from Christopher Wheeldon’s production of Alice in Wonderland, commissioned by The Royal Ballet. Beyond clever and perfectly performed! (Thanks to Jen for sharing.)
After watching that video I continued to watch every video of the production on Youtube. One of the most unique parts of the production is that the Mad Hatter was a tap role. Partnering Principal, Steven McRae’s superb ballet technique with his incredible tap skills was just perfect for the role. Than I got watching the few vids of McRae tapping on Youtube and I’m thoroughly impressed. It’s not every day you see a ballet dancer of that caliber doing his pullbacks just as exquisitely as his fouettes.
I love good Youtube finds!
