Carl Davis has become internationally renowned and admired for his film scores, but he has also composed a number of ballets on literary subjects, and this has developed into an important category of his work. In providing music for such classic tales as A Christmas Carol, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Cyrano de Bergerac, and Alice in Wonderland, Davis has extended his reach to a genre, which, like film, depends on music to carry the narrative along and to enhance its emotional content.

For Alice in Wonderland, Davis has drawn on themes by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, the Russian master whose Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, and Nutcracker are decidedly the most famous ballets in the world. Alice in Wonderland coheres surprisingly well, and Davis has the grace to let Tchaikovsky’s music shine in a familiar idiom, thereby making this a fourth Tchaikovsky ballet by default.
