Review

Great Concept…a worthy one --Janice Kennedy, The Ottawa Citizen

…combines colorful costumes, energetic choreography, and very effective video special effects… it's more like video art, and deserves an audience, young and old. --Video Librarian

Ballet, acrobatics, mime and various film techniques flow seamlessly into the whole. Lush costuming, classical music, kaleidoscopic color, and the mesmerizing cat combine to make this a rich viewing experience for adults as well as children. Particularly recommended for dance enthusiasts. --A Parent's Guide to the Best Children's Videos

Customer Reviews

I have to give this a bad review.

I recommend it to all Alice lovers and collectors, and as far as giving children nightmares, I don't think so.
J. S. Fedyk
Point being, not all Alice in Wonderland productions are necessarily suitable for young children.

This dance fantasy inspired by Alice in Wonderland is quite unique. The music, costumes, and sets are all wonderful. A most lovely Alice and a stern Queen are the two main characters. Yes, this story begins with dark and sinister overtones, but that is to reflect the personality of the Queen and her subjects. As the story continues you will see how and why the tone changes, and that is the beauty of this story. Note the exchange scene and how Alice handles it (being vague to avoid spoiler). I love the symbolic gesture in that scene and how things change thereafter. I highly recommend this to fans of Alice in Wonderland and dance.

This is one in a series of reviews that will eventually be posted for every Alice in Wonderland title available on Amazon. When the Tim Burton rendition of AIW with Johnny Depp was due out in 2010 I thought it might be a good time to go back and watch the benchmark Walt Disney production from 1951, which I saw -or assumed I saw- as a child. It was a chance to get reacquainted with the many varied characters from the story as sort of a warm up for the Burton film. Upon viewing the Disney classic I was astonished to realize that I had likely never seen more than a few clips (at most) of that beautifully rendered Alice in Wonderland. So much seemed brand new. Nor did I have a memory of ever seeing any other "Alice" production. Then I realized that I had never read the book! Wait a minute. Where then did my memory of the Alice story come from? The curiosity sparked by that question ultimately led me over the next two years to accumulate every version of Alice in Wonderland still in existence. Well over 40 by the way!

This general commentary continues over in the review sections for both the 1951 AIW production from Walt Disney (Alice in Wonderland (Masterpiece Edition)) and the 2010 production starring Johnny Depp (Alice in Wonderland).

I ordered this after reading another review stating that it may give children nightmares. I had to see for myself. I loved it! It's weird and beautiful. I recommend it to all Alice lovers and collectors, and as far as giving children nightmares, I don't think so. My kid loved it. In the style of the classic arts channel, this piece was a strange delight.

I bought this because I collect Alice in Wonderland movies and things.

I have to give this a bad review. Its less than half an hour long, and a lot of it is abstract to the point of not really being able to tell whats going on. The choreography is unimpressive, there is a lot of just hopping with intermittent wiggling and walking around in circles.

At the end of the day, its an obscure strange thing that I'm glad is in my collection, but if you are looking for just something to watch and enjoy there are far better versions.

Wasn't sure what to expect, definately not your average ballet rendition of alice in wonderland. A modern, clever low- tech piece with creative costumes and abstract sets.

If you enjoy any great story that everyone feels that needs repeating year after year you want to see how each actor does in the role. That is what I wanted to see .There are many stories that you don't mind seeing many times.

I purchased this for my daughter who collects all of the Alice movies she can. I hope I will also get an opportunity to watch it.
