The second of a season of live Royal Opera House cinema screenings will be shown at The Castle in Wellingborough tomorrow.

Audiences will be able to enjoy a live ballet screening of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland on Thursday, March 28.

Those familiar with Carroll’s literary menagerie of colourful characters may enjoy seeing how Christopher Wheeldon portrays them in dance. The whole company is drawn into the fun, dancing a myriad of quirky characters: a twitchy White Rabbit, a tap-dancing Mad Hatter, a sinuous caterpillar and many more.

A spokesman for the show said: “Alice and the Knave of Hearts, deftly danced by two Royal Ballet Principal dancers, are at the centre of the story, and the role of The Queen of Hearts, another Principal, is wittily captured with hilarious results.”

Tickets cost £15 or £13.50 and can be purchased by calling the box office on 01933 270007 or logging on to The screening will start at 7.15pm.

Other Royal Opera House live screenings coming up include Nabucco, on Monday, April 29, and Gloriana on Monday, June 24.
