It is Alice in Wonderland’s 150th birthday this year (we know, she looks great for her age!) and she is still going strong, inspiring everything from fashion to ballet, opera to art, a testament to Lewis Carroll’s most curious and enduring creation. So we’re going head first down the rabbit hole to Wonderland for all kinds of curious events:
Unsuk Chin’s Alice in Wonderland opera at the Barbican is a multi-media production. It was the South Korean composer’s first opera, with a libretto co-written by the composer with David Henry Hwang performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. — Unsuk Chin’s Alice in Wonderland opera at the Barbican, EC2, is on 8th March (suitable for age 12+).
The British Museum is showcasing its magnificent Ancient Greek art collection this spring with its blockbuster exhibition, Defining Beauty: The Body in Ancient Greek Art.
With around 150 artworks from the museum’s own collection and beyond, the exhibition shows how the Greeks revolutionised art in the 5th century BC, with their representation of the human form in a more naturalistic way. The Greeks championed the idealised human form or body beautiful and showing the naked form as heroic.
Custard pies and splurge guns at the ready as Sir Alan Parker’s gangster musical Bugsy Malone hits the stage at the newly renovated Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith.
The children’s musical set in a prohibition-era New York is play-acting at its best, with a young gangster cast that thrill with the fun of their make-believe warfare.
Based on the 1976 film, that starred a very young Jodie Foster, it the story of mob boss Fat Sam’s battle with rival Dandy Dan for control of his Grandslam speakeasy, with boxing promoter Bugsy falling for nightclub singer Blousey Brown along the way.
Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper stars in the stage play of The Elephant Man over the summer, transferring from its Broadway run.
Cooper, making his West End debut, stars alongside Patricia Clarkson as Mrs Kendal and Alessandro Nivolo as Dr Treves in Bernard Pomerance’s 1977 play about the real life of severely disfigured John Merrick.
Rory Kinnear is starring in a new version of Franz Kafka’s The Trial over the summer. The play — a new adaptation by Nick Gill — is on at the Young Vic, a great little theatre putting on interesting productions (such as its recent sell-out A Streetcar Called Desire starring Gillian Anderson).
The play is a nightmare scenario with Kinnear’s character Josef K being arrested for unstated crimes by agents from an unspecified agency on his 30th birthday. It is directed by Richard Jones.
