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+).
The Old Vic Theatre’s new season starting this autumn is the first for new artistic director Matthew Warchus. Taking over from Kevin Spacey to run one of London’s most historic theatres, Warchus’s first season is a mix of new and old plays, from Pinter to Dr Seuss’s The Lorax, and includes a musical and a Eugene O’Neill production.
This autumn rugby’s greatest championship the Rugby World Cup rolls into town, with London playing centre stage for the tournament.
Kicking off at England’s home ground of Twickenham Stadium, with the opening ceremony and England v Fiji match on 18th September, there are 44 days and 48 matches in the competition, and nations from Namibia to New Zealand taking part.
The 59th London Film Festival opens in October with a two-week showcase of the best in new cinema from around the world.
The festival will open with Suffragette, starring Carey Mulligan, Meryl Streep and Helena Bonham Carter, and close with Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Michael Fassbender.
Goya: The Portraits is set to be a highlight of the autumn art season, the first ever exhibition to focus solely on the Spanish master artist’s portraiture.
Francisco de Goya’s candid paintings of 18th to 19th-century royalty and Spanish court society make for fascinating viewing as they are considered so psychologically revealing of their sitters. The National Gallery’s exhibition follows Goya’s career from court painter to Charles III, through the years of turmoil that Spain suffered under Joseph Bonaparte and Ferdinand VII, and ending with Goya’s final years in France.
