About

Music for the Derek Deane Production of Alice in Wonderland for English National Ballet.

In 1995,  English National Ballet commissioned a score for a full length ballet, based on Lewis Carroll’s immortal masterpiece, Alice in Wonderland. The one stipulation and challenge was for a score to be based on the music of Tchaikovsky. Carl Davis accepted the challenge and a smash hit was born!
    
The centre of the score is derived from Tchaikovsky’s 'Album for the Young'. Davis also drew on Tchaikovsky’s Theatre Music, Tone Poems and Operas, as well as the beautiful waltz from the Fifth Symphony for The Garden of Living Flowers.
