Main Stage Relaxed Performance
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Acts II and III
Tuesday March 12, 2024 at 2:00 pm
Relaxed Performances are designed to welcome the Disability Community into artistic spaces. We are excited to welcome families who can find access to the arts limited to see ballet in a more relaxed and approachable environment. The National Ballet of Canada held our first mainstage performance in 2022 with The Sleeping Beauty followed by Cinderella in 2023. This season we will be doing a main stage Relaxed Performance of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Acts II and III. Each Relaxed Performance is structured to ensure that children and adults who are Neurodiverse, members of the d/Deaf or Hard of Hearing and Disability Communities feel safe, celebrated, and cared for.
