      Event: Unsuk Chin's Opera/Alice's Adventures Underground/The Alice Look

      Location: Various venues

      It is Alice in Wonderland’s 150th birthday this year (we know, she looks great for her age!) and she is still going strong, inspiring everything from fashion to ballet, opera to art, a testament to Lewis Carroll’s most curious and enduring creation. So we’re going head first down the rabbit hole to Wonderland for all kinds of curious events:

      Unsuk Chin’s Alice in Wonderland opera at the Barbican is a multi-media production. It was the South Korean composer’s first opera, with a libretto co-written by the composer with David Henry Hwang performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. — Unsuk Chin’s Alice in Wonderland opera at the Barbican, EC2, is on 8th March (suitable for age 12+).

      Event: Unfinished … Works from the Courtauld Gallery

      Location: Courtauld Gallery, WC2

      The Courtauld Gallery’s summer exhibition looks at incomplete artworks from its collection. Unfinished … Works from the Courtauld Gallery brings together paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture from the Renaissance to the 20th century that for a variety reasons were never completed.

      In some cases the artist died or was unhappy with the artwork and discarded it halfway through, giving a fascinating view into the process of creating art through different periods of history. Then there are the works left deliberately unfinished. From the Renaissance to the Impressionists, artists have left their works for the viewer to complete in their mind.
