"The Cheshire Cat sings a genuine blues. Schreier composed the boat ride from Wonderland back to reality as a fugue. Yet the song cycle sounds astonishingly homogeneous ... The affectionate arrangement of the events in which appearances never coincide with reality, the captivating music, and the amusing texts beyond all logic make Wonderland a thoroughly enjoyable evening of theatre. During its course, the viewers and listeners let themselves be carried away from reality for an hour by the power of imagination." (Jürgen Strein, Fränkische Nachrichten, 20 Apr 2013)
