Halloween is all about the costumes, and Cincinnati Ballet is going all out in that department for its "Alice (in wonderland)" this weekend at Music Hall. Known for elaborate and highly imaginative costumes designed for the likes of Cirque du Soleil, celebrated Costume Designer Liz Vandal's wild creations really bring characters to life. The dancers are having fun dressing up and getting into character for some fresh new twists on Lewis Carroll's classic tales.

And with lively choreography from Cuban-born Septime Webre of The Washington Ballet — who previously lent his talents for the company's popular Peter Pan production — the dancing promises to soar and capture the imagination of adults and children alike. The Ballet is really taking all aspects to new heights with this bold new production that just premiered at The Washington Ballet in April: magnificent scenery, sets and lighting — plus the premier of an expanded score for 55 musicians, played live by Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Don't be late for this very important date! $31-$87. Through Sunday, Oct. 28. Cincinnati Ballet, 1555 Central Parkway, Downtown. 513-621-5282 or
