Damon Albarn Writes Music For Updated Take on the Alice Story With "wonder.land"

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Blur’s Damon Albarn has composed the score for the musical wonder.land, based on Lewis Carroll’s iconic story Alice In Wonderland.

wonder.land is a new telling of the classic tale created for the online generation with video projections, lighting, stunning sets and Albarn’s music.

It tells the story of Aly who struggles with the pressures of being a teenager continually internally questioning her family, friends and school. Aly discovers ‘wonder.land’, an online world that becomes her looking glass.


‘wonder.land’ has been commissioned for the Manchester International Festival with performances at the Oliver Theatre through-out April.
