April 6, 2012 - PRLog -- Ballet Hawaii is honored to announce that it will present The Washington Ballet's new production of Alice (in Wonderland) at Honolulu's Blaisdell Concert Hall on August 11 and 12, 2012 as part of its Summer Intensive Program. Created by Septime Webre, artistic director of The Washington Ballet, and featuring a new original score by Matthew Pierce, Alice (in Wonderland) will receive its world premiere on April 11, 2012 at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. This summer, Septime Webre and principal dancers from The Washington Ballet will travel to Honolulu to partner with Ballet Hawaii in presenting the ballet, which will also offer selected Ballet Hawaii students the opportunity to perform as well. New sets by James Kronzer and new costumes by Liz Vandal – provided by The Washington Ballet – will make the experience unforgettable!

"It's going to be a wild ride," said Webre. "Precocious little Alice will lead us on a raucous journey where things are not always what they seem."

This week, Pamela Taylor Tongg, Ballet Hawaii artistic director, and Lesley Young, Ballet Hawaii school coordinator are in D.C. for the world premiere. They will experience the ballet first-hand at rehearsals and bring the magic home to Honolulu.

Ballet Hawaii's Summer Intensive offers each student the experience of pre-professional dance training with an outstanding guest faculty. This year, student dancers may have the opportunity to work with exceptional guest artists from The Washington Ballet and participate in Ballet Hawaii's presentation of Alice (in Wonderland).

According to The Washington Ballet, "Never before has The Washington Ballet combined such forces to create a new ballet. From the revolutionary vision of Washington Ballet’s Septime Webre, designer Liz Vandal (Cirque du Soliel’s OVO), and composer Matthew Pierce comes a spectacularly reimagined take on Lewis Carroll’s classic story! Enter the magical world of Alice’s adventures, splendidly costumed, and gloriously danced…an unforgettable journey down the rabbit hole and the season’s grandest production!"
