Bluegrass Youth Ballet to Perform “Alice in Wonderland”

Fall down the rabbit hole with Alice into an enchanted world of mystery and confusion. Alice begins in a Hall of Doors, eats questionable treats, and after some shape shifting, is off to explore. She meets flowers and mushrooms come-to-life, attends a Caucus Race and tea party, and runs into the mischievous Cheshire Cat, a life-sized puppet manipulated by seven dancers. She then earns herself an invitation to play croquet with the temperamental Queen of Hearts and must be careful not to lose her head. 

The adventure continues after the 2pm Saturday show with “The Mad Hatter Tea Party.” Children and families are invited for drinks, sweets, and crafts with the main characters of the ballet immediately following the Saturday matinee in the lower level of the Opera House. The tea party will be raising funds for BYB’s Tuition Assistance Program.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Lexington Opera House is one of the premiere performing arts centers in the region. Originally constructed in 1886 after a fire had destroyed the original theatre located on the corner of Main and Broadway, the “new” Opera House, designed by Oscar Cobb, opened its doors on July 19, 1887. The distinctly 19th-century ambiance is one of the most charming features of the restored theatre. With less than 1,000 seats, the venue currently serves an average of 85,000 patrons annually and remains a premier cultural destination in downtown Lexington. The facility is owned and managed by Lexington Center Corporation.
