Gerald Barry’s new opera is based on Lewis Carroll’s two beloved books, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. As with Barry’s last opera, the lauded The Importance of Being Earnest, the composer has created the libretto himself from the author’s original texts. Thus, the work remains faithful to many aspects of the Alice story but is trimmed and compressed into a compact 70-minute opera in one act. Barry’s characteristic highspeed energy and riotous sense of humour propel the action forward in this surreal plunge into the depths of Wonderland.
