As composed by Korean musician Unsuk Chin, this modern operetta constitutes an adaptation of Lewis Carroll's beloved fantasy novel Alice in Wonderland. Achim Freyer directed the production (also designing the unusual masks worn by the participants); the operetta also features puppets designed by Nina Weitzner. Sally Matthews, Piia Komse, Andrew Watts and Guy de Mey co-star; the Statisterie der Bayerischen Staatsoper, the Choir of the Bayerischen Staatsoper, the Children's Choir of the Bayerischen Staatsoper, and the Orchestra of the Bayerisches Staatsorchester provide musical accompaniment, with Andrés Máspero serving as chorus master and Kent Nagano conducting.
