Christopher Wheeldon’s new full-length ballet brings the magic of Laura Esquivel’s modern Mexican novel to The Royal Ballet.
A co-production between The Royal Ballet and American Ballet Theatre.
The ballet reunites Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon with the creative team behind Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Winter’s Tale, composer Joby Talbot and designer Bob Crowley.
Inspired by Laura Esquivel’s captivating family saga, where the central character’s emotions spill out through cooking to influence everyone around her in startling and dramatic ways. Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra acts as musical consultant for Talbot’s newly commissioned score and Wheeldon has worked closely with Esquivel to reshape her richly-layered story into an entertaining and engrossing ballet.
