Louise Loves: Alice’s Adventures – The Opera is coming to Limerick!

OPERA Collective Ireland will present the Irish premiere of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, an opera for the whole family based on Lewis Carroll’s beloved children’s book.
Composed by Will Todd with a libretto by Maggie Gottlieb, this entertaining and engaging opera received rave reviews when it premiered at Opera Holland Park in 2013.
Directed by Caroline Chaney with sets and costumes by Leslie Travers, Opera Collective Ireland’s touring production features a dynamic young Irish cast and the Irish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Stephen Barlow.
Eleven-year-old Alice is brought out of her daydreams when she meets a talking Rabbit who insists on following her to a mysterious Wonderland… In this fantastical place, Alice meets a number of strange characters, including a caterpillar relaxed, a happy cat, a depressed hare, a white knight, a romantic duchess, a mad hatter and a sleeping dormouse, and learns that all is not well in Wonderland…
Familiar characters, blues-inspired music and comedic lyrics, it can be enjoyed by audiences young and old.
The perfect Easter treat and family day out. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland arrives at the Lime Tree Theater on Wednesday, April 6. Tickets from €20. More details @limtree.ie
