Under Ground at the Royal Opera House

London’s Royal Opera House will be presenting Gerald Barry’s opera Alice’s Adventures Under Ground February 3–9 , 2020.

Described as “fun, furious, frantic, and utterly fantastic! The surreal world of Lewis Carroll’s Alice, both in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, is given an extra twist in operatic treatment. At less than an hour for the whole opera, this short, sharp shot of mayhem is ideal as a family treat. Antony McDonald directs and designs this new production – the first ever staging of this musically virtuoso opera – with more than a touch of the Victorian toy theatre.”

A concert version of the opera was reviewed in Knight Letter 98 pl. 39.
