Youth Ballet West in Galway

"Alice Underground" World Premier - Volvo Ocean Race Week



Youth Ballet West will premier their new Ballet ‘Alice Underground’ in the Town Hall Theatre Galway @ 17.00 and 19.30 on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th July.  These performances will coincide with the Volvo Ocean Race 2012 grand finale in Galway in July.

‘Alice Underground’ is a modern interpretation of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking Glass’- Lewis Carol’s classic tales.

The concept and choreography have been realised by Claire Lillis and Judith Sibley. Together, they have taken key elements from these stories and created an inspired masterpiece.

This show promises to be one of the quirkiest, fun theatrical events this year. A thrilling  treat for all the family. Book early - it is sure to sell out.
