Two sides to the Mad Hatter at the Royal Opera House

The festive season is the perfect time to bring fun and fantasy to London's stages, and this year the Royal Opera House is offering two radically different takes on Lewis Carroll's much loved Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

While traditionalists may opt for the Royal Ballet's revival of Christopher Wheeldon's hugely successful production of Alice, Zoo Nation bring their own unique brand of dance entertainment with their new show, The Mad Hatter's Tea Party. It is the first full length hip hop show to be performed at the Royal Opera House.

Entertainment Correspondent Brenda Emmanus reports.
