Like Water for Chocolate DVD (The Royal Ballet)

Notify me when this product is available:

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 Sambé as Pedro, reshape this captivating family saga into a richly layered and engrossing new ballet where passion, mystery and magic combine.

Totally Captivating!

As soon as my DVD arrived, I stopped everything, got settled in and watched the ballet. It was quite a story, easy to follow because the choreography and the acting was so good! The dancers were incredible! I cried and cheered and clapped. It was great! I have vivid memories of my favorite parts. Thank you so much!

Highest delight

I love it and have already watched it several times. Marcelino Sambé and Francesca Hayward are outstanding, stage design and music most beautiful. Sometimes a bit too much "going on".

A amazing rendition of what I thought would have been a difficult subject to turn into a ballet. I am amazed to see such a fulfilling result that has captured the full essence of the original story depicting such convincing detail and perfection.
