WASHINGTON -- Following last spring's Washington Ballet performance of "Alice," the Kennedy Center is once again staging the Lewis Carroll classic. The National Ballet of Canada is in the midst of Christopher Wheeldon’s "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."

A co-production between National Ballet of Canada and London's Royal Ballet, this performance will run until Jan. 27. The work has been praised by The Washington Post. "Wheeldon’s account of the beloved Lewis Carroll story is eventful and beautifully designed."
