A modern Mexican classic provides the basis for a theatrical tale of love, jealousy, repression, and revolution. The Royal Ballet's 2022 production reunited Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon with the stellar creative team who transformed Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and The Winter's Tale into dance, composer Joby Talbot and designer Bob Crowley. Inspired by Laura Esquivel's novel, the central character's emotions spill out through cooking to influence everyone around her in startling and dramatic ways. The full Company, led by Francesca Hayward as Tita and Marcelino Samb̌ as Pedro, reshapes this captivating family saga into a richly layered and engrossing new ballet where passion, mystery, and magic combine.
