Cross. “Our hearts go out to the dancers, who have dedicated their lives to their art, winning international acclaim for their performances. But our first concern must be for the safety of the dancers. We remain committed to bringing this great company to the Festival in the near future and will announce rescheduled dates as soon as possible.”

The 2020 Virginia Arts Festival thanks you for your continued support, and hope to see you at another performance this spring.
Get ready for a wild ride down the rabbit hole! When choreographer and director Septime Webre joined the Hong Kong Ballet in 2017, after 17 years at The Washington Ballet, he brought with him a fierce energy, boundless imagination, and a pocketful of inspired ballets including his brilliantly conceived staging of Alice in Wonderland. Based on the Lewis Carroll classic, the ballet features eye-popping costumes by Liz Vandal of Cirque du Soleil, vivid stagecraft, and the phenomenal dancing of this internationally acclaimed ballet company. Look for a delightfully loony Mad Hatter, a villainous Red Queen, airborne antics of Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and all your favorite characters brought to vivacious life. You’ve never seen Alice like this before!
