Showtimes
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 Wonderland and The Winter’s Tale into dance, composer Joby Talbot and designer Bob

Crowley.

The ballet is inspired by Laura 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 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 new ballet
