The Queen of Hearts has what’s got to be one of the funniest solos in any ballet. We won’t ruin much, but her homage to the Rose Adagio – expertly renamed the Tart Adagio – will have you chuckling to yourself for days. She also owns a great entrance, brilliant costumes and a fierce theme tune. Who else oohed when the Caterpillar made his entrance? Because we sure did. Sensuous and mysterious, from tiny wiggly hands to full body rolls, he hypnotises us deeper into Wonderland.
