** There are multiple references to ''Theatre/TheNutcracker,'' including the dance of the flowers that ends Act I (or II, depending on the version). The White Rabbit is also closer to Drosselmeier than to Carroll's original. Another similarities with The Nutcraker includes most of the story takes place within the main character's, who is a girl, dream, both end with the girl waking up from her dream, both ballets begin with a party and the main antagonist is a royal.

The dancers in the caterpillar scene look a lot like the Arabian (Coffee) dancers from a lot of productions of that ballet.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: "Pig And Pepper". Dear ''god'', "Pig And Pepper". Especially in the original version. It starts when the Cook opens a window and smoke pours out as she sharpens two oversized meat cleavers. Alice goes inside the house...where everything is bathed in red light and giant pigs are strung up from the ceiling, plus one that's half in a mincer with sausages coming out the other end. The Cook and the Duchess both have blood-stained aprons on, and more than once end up attempting to ''kill'' each other. Then, after all that, Alice escapes from the house with the baby (who has by now turned into a pig), only to have it snatched from her by the Duchess who carries it ''back inside the house'' while the Cook slams the door brandishing her meat cleaver. Considering that the rest of the ballet is arguably LighterAndSofter than its literature counterpart, this entire section is particularly jarring.

''Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'' (2011) is a full-evening story ballet adapted from ''Literature/AliceInWonderland,'' with choreography by Christopher Wheeldon and music by Jody Talbot. The ballet was co-produced by the Royal Ballet and the National Ballet of Canada, both of which have staged their own productions. It debuted in the USA in late 2012, when the NBC performed it in Los Angeles; in 2013, the Royal Ballet staged a live cinema performance and later took the ballet to Japan. Opus Arte released ''Alice'' on DVD in 2011.

** The NBC used a female dancer for the Dormouse in both of its runs, as did the Royal Ballet in one cast of the 2013 production.

*** The Queen herself is a sendup of an egotistical prima ballerina.

* BillingDisplacement: From the promotional materials and Opus Arte's DVD trailer, you'd think that the Mad Hatter was a much bigger role. If this were a musical, he'd qualify as MinorCharacterMajorSong.
