A modern Mexican classic of magic realism provides the basis for The Royal Ballet’s new full-length work, reuniting  Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon with the creative team who transformed Alice’s Adventures in Wonderlandand The Winter’s Taleinto dance, composer Joby Talbot and designer Bob Crowley.

The ballet is inspiredbyLaura Esquivel’s novel – a captivating family saga where the central character’s emotions spill out through cooking to influence everyone around her in startling and dramatic ways. In this co-production with American Ballet Theatre, Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra also acts asmusical consultant for Talbot’s newly commissioned score, and Wheeldon has worked closely with  Esquivel to reshape her richly layered story intoan entertaining and engrossing new ballet.
