Follow Alice as she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit hole
and finds a place of Wonder.
A place where friendly faces smile.
A place with singing Caterpillars
and Pious Cats
A place with Vain Queens
and Mad Hatters
A Music Drama Through Art Song
In Wonderland (Intro) Alondra Vega-Zaldivar

Alice, Reality or Abstraction Jordi Rossinyol
The musical fragment of a minute Opera inspired in the text of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
The Pious Cat Julie Mandel
Based on a short story by the Polish writer I.L.Peretz, has been interpreted as a condemnation of intolerance and persecution committed in the name of religion.
Tea Party Ben Pascal
A scene in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, finds Alice joining three characters drinking tea (and some other liquor). In my piece, I tried to give a character to each instrument to create dialogues between the tea drinkers and Alice.
Looking Into Trees (Concerto Grosso II) Edgar Suski
Cushiquillca - Cuando lo divisa el lobo Patrick Arteaga
The text for this piece is taken from the poem Coplas de Contento by Luis Cordero Crespo. It is a Spanish translation by the author from its original Quichua version written in March 1884.
Looking Into Trees (Concerto Grosso VI) Edgar Suski
Off With Their Heads Brooke deRosa
From the opera 'Alice in Wonderland,' this aria is sung by the Queen of Hearts. The bipolar nature of her character is reflected by extreme dynamics and sudden mood swings.
Speaking Is Matthew Becker
In this piece, I use a nonsensical text about dreams, or a dream. For the Cara Benson poem that I set to music, the content itself may seem silly, though there is an air of seriousness I try to capture in my music.
Songs and Dances - The Lobster Quadrille Jordan Kuspa
This is a set of three songs I wrote for my good friend Katina Mitchell. The central conceit of the set is that each pieces includes an extended of dance sequence, often seeming to appear out of nowhere.
The Jabberwocky Marga Richter
A setting of the Lewis Carroll's poem found in his novel Alice, Through The Looking Glass.
5 Views Re/Dux – The Coated Macadam Will Rowe
Is a set of short poems by Catherine Fletcher. Published in Poetry of Wales, the poetry riffs on various lines from Peter Finch’s Five Views of Wales, in which Catherine sets the text taken from Finch’s work as the titles of each poem in 5 Views Re/ Dux, and uses them as the springboard for her ideas in the body of each poem.
What Alice Found There – Wonderland Siobhra Quinlan
Is an escapist song-cycle inspired by the Lewis Carroll classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
