Third full length ballet from Talbot and Wheeldon

In their 20/21 season, the Royal Ballet presents the world premiere of Christopher Wheeldon and Joby Talbot’s new full-length ballet Like Water for Chocolate, based on the Mexican novel of the same name by Laura Esquivel.

This co-commission between The Royal Ballet and American Ballet Theatre reunites the creative team including costume and set designer Bob Crowley and lighting designer Natasha Katz. Luke Halls joins them as projection designer while acclaimed conductor and Cultural Ambassador to Mexico Alondra de la Parra conducts. Laura Esquivel worked with Wheeldon to shape the text of her magical novel into a scenario for the ballet, which also draws on rich historical research by Camila de la Parra. 

Full details will be announced on 1st June.
