A review of the Royal Ballet in "Like Water for Chocolate" by Louise Levene in The Financial Times.


Bob Crowley, whose phantasmagoric designs were the making of 2011’s Alice and who created powerful stage pictures for 2014’s The Winter’s Tale, was a natural choice to bring Esquivel’s dreamlike imagery to life. The near-ludicrous moment when sister Gertrudis (zestily danced by both Anna Rose O’Sullivan and Meaghan-Grace Hinkis) is driven wild by a large helping of quails in rose petal sauce and runs naked into the desert to be ravished mid-gallop by a passing revolutionary ought to be unstageable, but Crowley, with a bucking bronco puppet and a flesh-coloured leotard, somehow finds a way.
