ALICE IN WONDERLAND

Inspired by Lewis Carroll's original dream adventure, this is a theatrical production with song and incidental music that brings to life the surrealistic characterizations and fantasical atmosphere of this universally beloved story. This musical adaptation of Alice was written for performances by a children's theater group, but the play can be performed for "kids of all ages" by adults as well and is available for licensing by your preforming organization. The score, which ranges in style from pop to opera (without operatic vocal requirements) expresses all the humor, drama and emotional power of this remarkable tale. For more information and musical examples, go here:

Discover Alice

"... it was the music that gave the Ft. Collins Children's Theater production of "Alice in Wonderland" its most unique flavor. Sirotta can be credited with composing music that straddles the fence between theater and concert. It was unusually textured instrumentally, considering the lyrics had a particular story to tell. This felt like an upgrade in the quality of music over other kids' productions in memory."
— Tim Van Schmidt, Publisher and independent columnist,fortcollinslife-times.com

Client comment from Stephen v2, creator of IN SATURN"S RINGS,
a new independent film:

After exchanging some emails with Michael and hearing some samples of his work, for a very,very reasonable fee, he supplied (me) with an incredible version based on the original score ...

...So now I have my guide track. If you ever need some quality help with classical music, I highly recommend Sir Muse.
