This session will feature a panel of distinguished guests, including Laura Esquivel, the acclaimed author of Like Water for Chocolate, and two-time Tony Award®-winning choreographer, Christopher Wheeldon. Alongside them, ABT dancers Cassandra Trenary (Tita), Herman Cornejo (Pedro), and Courtney Lavine (Nacha) will share their unique experiences and insights into bringing these vibrant characters to life on the ballet stage. Courtney Lavine and Amy Brandt, Editor in Chief of Pointe Magazine, will be our moderators for the event.
We anticipate a lively discussion about the transformation of this beloved story from the page to ballet stage, and we would be delighted if you could join us. This will be a free-flowing conversation, providing a glimpse into the magic behind this remarkable story and ballet.
